The risk of coastal flooding in East Anglia on Wednesday and Thursday has been downgraded to 'very low'.

It was feared high tides could coincide with strong northerly winds to created a tidal surge with the risk of some flooding at the coast.

The Environment Agency now says: "The forecast risk of flooding across England and Wales for today and the next two days is very low."

Large amounts of damage caused in 'high value burglary' at Milton Keynes jewellers

There's been severe damage caused to a jewellery shop in the centre of Milton Keynes after burglars managed to break in earlier this morning (November 21).

It happened at around 3:40 at the Fraser Hart store in Silbury Arcade.

The robbers started a fire outside the shop and even padlocked a chain across the road to make it more difficult for police to chase them.

It meant that the roads around the nearby Centre:MK shopping centre had to be shut for much of the morning but they've now reopened.

“It is fortunate that nobody was hurt during this incident. This was a deliberate and well-planned robbery which would have meant the offenders would have been in the area beforehand as part of their preparations.

The road is now open; however restricted access to some parts of the shopping centre will remain in place until we have completed our investigation work.

We would urge anyone working or living in CMK who saw anyone acting suspiciously near Silbury Arcade earlier this week or in the early hours of this morning to contact us as a matter of urgency on 101.”

In Norfolk, the A1076 Gayton Road in King's Lynn is closed both ways due to fallen tree between Winston Churchill Drive East and Winston Churchill Drive West.
