Heavy rain in West Suffolk has localised flooding.

Sproughton Road, in Ipswich, is currently closed due to a blocked drain.

Police closed the road earlier this evening and it is set to reopen later tonight.

A blocked drain is causing substantial water flooding outside the Volkswagen dealership on the road.

A fire crew attended to rescue a man from his car, who became stuck at about 8pm.

Two fire engines were also called to flooding in Mannnings pub on Cornhill, Ipswich, as a result of the rain.
They were required to pump water out of the building.
