Essex Fire and Rescue has warned drivers not to venture into flood water after several motorists had to be rescued overnight. Heavy rain has left some roads underwater, and there's been flooding along the river Chelmer where a cycle path is now impassable.

The Environment Agency says the worst risk of flooding in the area has now passed.
