Persistent rain, heavy at times, has affected the Anglia region since Thursday afternoon. More than an inch of rain (25.4mm) has fallen in places onto ground already saturated by an exceptionally wet winter so far.
At 9:30 this morning, 21 flood warnings and 41 flood alerts were in force. The rain is now easing and most places will become dry this afternoon. However, there'll be further rain at times this weekend, combined with very strong winds.
