A special workshop will be held in Lowestoft next month highlighting information about flooding.

The British Red Cross is holding a community flood workshop at Waterlane Leisure Centre, Lowestoft on Saturday, March 3.

This free community event, which is organised by the British Red Cross and sponsored by Aviva, is held between 10.30am and 3pm.

A spokesman for British Red Cross said; 'Is your community prepared for flooding? Flooding can be unexpected and disruptive, but there are a few simple things you can do to prepare.

'Join us to share your experiences of emergency situations, chat through your concerns, find out what support is available to you and meet some of your local emergency responders who will be able to answer your questions about flooding as well as demonstrate the support available with lots of useful information.'

Visit and register by Friday, February 23.
