Flooding is possible in parts of Suffolk today, the Environment Agency is warning, following the recent heavy snow.

The barrage of snow which struck last week may be thawing in many parts, but the repercussions are still being felt across the country.

In Suffolk, the Environment Agency has issued four flood alerts - the lowest type of flood warning. They are listed below. There is one flood alert for Essex, which is one of the same alerts for Suffolk.

In total across the country, 33 flood alerts are in place, largely concentrated in the west of England and Wales.

The Rivers Deben and Lark (also covers parts of Essex)

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This message has been issued because of the rainfall over the last 24 hours combined with last week’s snow melting. This means that we are currently seeing higher river levels than normal in the area downstream of Brandeston. The forecast is for no significant rainfall for the next 24 hours. We are expecting river levels to remain high, but soon start to slowly recede in the upper parts of the River Deben and Lark. There is the possibility of some minor flooding to low lying land, roads and riverside gardens. We will continue to closely monitor levels and update this message as necessary.

The Rivers Blyth and Walpole and Chediston, Bramfield and Wrentham watercourses
