A flood warning has been issued for the River Yare, with high water levels expected over the weekend
The Environment Agency is expecting high water levels from Thorpe St Andrew to Breydon Water due to the natural tide locking caused by higher waters at Lowestoft.
It is restricting the Broads’ normal drainage out to sea at low tide.
High water is due at Lowestoft at 2am on Saturday, November 11 and high levels in the Broads may last for a few days.
