People in Suffolk have been urged to stay alert to spray and sudden flooding, which could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

Power cuts could occur in the region and other services to some homes and business might be lost as a result of the weather.

It comes after Suffolk was hit by a heavy thunderstorm at the weekend after a couple of days of sweltering conditions.
