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.
