Torrential downpours over the weekend brought flash flooding to many parts of the Anglia region. Roads and gardens were flooded particularly in east Norfolk.

More than 60 mm of rain fell in little more than a day at Wattisham in Suffolk. That amounts to the expected rain in an average five-week period.

Saturday was the wettest day of June 2014 and brought flash flooding to some parts of Suffolk as storms brought torrential rain.

The highest daily rainfall reading was 23.6 mm in the 24-hours to 10am Sunday at the Brooms Barn Agricultural Station in Higham near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

All of that rain fell in one hour between 3pm and 4pm on Saturday and it represents what is normally nearly a fortnight's worth of rain.

But it was hit-and-miss with the storms and some places in the region escaped with very little rain.

Overall June 2014 in the Anglia region is still drier than average with only two-thirds of the average rainfall falling across the area during the month.
