Aerial snap shows rain’s impact on Bungay marshes

Heavy and persistent rain has led to scenes of flooding across the country.

Cars have been submerged and sandbags have been laid by front doors, as the Environment Agency has issued more than 300 flood warnings.

The River Waveney has been on flood alert between Ellingham and Breydon Water, and this aerial image from Mike Page shows the impact in the other direction, between Bungay and Wortwell.

Water levels on Bungay marshes have noticeably risen, with the levels clear to see from the A143.

They also hit the annual Groggy Doggy Boxing Day cross country run, with the traditional route having to be changed because of flooding.
