Following a day of heavy rainfall and strong winds, further flooding is expected across Suffolk as the county experiences a third day of alerts and warnings. 

The Environment Agency has issued six flood alerts across the county as river levels continue to rise following the downpours of Thursday. 

This is an escalation of the alerts over the past few days, with Friday set to see some of the worst flooding of the week. 

The Rivers Lark and Deben have rapidly rising water levels, and alerts are in place for parts of east Suffolk.

The areas most at risk are low-lying roads and riverside areas on the Deben from Debenham to Ufford, including Framsden, Earl Soham, Easton, Glevering and Wickham Market, and on the Rivers Lark and Finn around Witnesham, Tuddenham St Martin, Playford and Grundisburgh.

Further west, the River Lark from Sicklesmere to Isleham, including Bury St Edmunds, is also vulnerable to further rainfall.

The Rattlesden River and River Gipping, through and including Stowmarket and Needham Market, which have suffered significantly from recent flooding, could burst their banks today, causing further issues for locals and those driving in the area. 

The Little Ouse River from Rickinghall to Hockwold, including The Black Bourn, is part of the flood alert, with Brandon and Ixworth also likely to be affected. 

Low-lying roads and riverside areas around the River Dove from Mendlesham to Hoxne, including Eye, are also at risk.

Parts of the River Waveney in Suffolk have been issued weather warnings, which means that flooding is likely. 

Areas in Diss, Bungay and Beccles could experience flooding today, particularly if any further rain falls. 

In Newmarket, particularly along High Street, groundwater levels are holding steady and remain responsive to further rainfall.

"Flood water is dangerous," said the Environment Agency.

"Don't put yourself or others at risk."
