The Princes Street branch of Barclays Bank in Ipswich is closed due to flooding.


Rainwater damage to the bank’s interior means it will be closed for the rest of the day, staff outside the bank informed customers that a pipe had burst.

“Our contractors are on site assessing the damage and we are hoping to reopen on Wednesday.

“We have staff outside the branch advising customers on their options which include using the post office in Tower Ramparts and we have extra staff at our branch at Woodbridge Road.
