A viewer has tweeted us pictures of a car stranded in a flooded ford at Shotesham in Norfolk.

The weather warning is in force from 1pm until 5pm on Sunday 26 June 2016

The Met Office says following this morning's heavy showers, further heavy showers are likely to develop for a time this afternoon across eastern parts of both East Anglia and Kent.

Although some places will miss the showers, please be aware of the risk of localised impacts due to surface water flooding, especially in locations where the ground is already very wet, following heavy rain during the past few days.

The showers should quickly die out later this afternoon.

"The remnants of the deeply unstable airmass of the past few days are expected to remain over the extreme southeast of the UK through today.

"As temperatures rise this afternoon, this will probably lead to further heavy showers developing, although these are unlikely to be quite as heavy as yesterday. Rainfall rates of 15 mm in an hour could occur locally."

He tweeted the following tribute to Norwich City and their fans, and says he hopes to see them in the Premier League again soon.
