Despite replacement buses being ordered, Greater Anglia has said it is yet to receive bus times because of the poor road conditions, and is urging people travelling to wait for the weather to improve.

Jonathon Denby, head of corporate affairs, said: "Because of the flooding we advise anybody who can make journeys later to do so and wait for the water to recede but clearly at the moment it is absolutely torrential.

"We have ordered replacement buses but the conditions are awful on the roads so we are not sure how long they will take to arrive, but hopefully we can get them running soon."

The railway lines between Norwich and Sheringham have also been affected by the rain with services suspended until further notice.
