Flood warnings have been issued once more for Suffolk as tides are expected to rise on Tuesday afternoon.

Minor flooding to coastal road and footpaths is expected between 1.15pm and 3.15pm on Tuesday.

The Environment Agency said that the flood was being caused by high spring tides and a small surge.

It warned local residents to take care on coastal roads and footpaths and to not put yourselves at risk.
