Warnings were issued across the county on Sunday as a large band of heavy rain swept through the East.

The wet weather caused residential flooding and disruption on the roads as East Anglian saw its wettest day of 2019.

Despite the most extreme weather passing, a red flood waning remains in place for Halesworth where river levels are still high according to the Environment Agency.

Areas most at risk are the Thoroughfare, Chediston Street, Saxons Way and School Lane in Halesworth, the A144 and the railway line at Halesworth.

The warning will remain in place until the end of the day.

There are also yellow warnings in place for properties near the Rivers Blyth, Walpole and Chediston as well as the Bramfield and Wrentham watercourses.

Despite the weather drying up overnight, forecasters are predicting that the wet spell could still continue.

More rain is due to fall from around 5pm today until midnight potentially bringing further disruption to the areas affected.
