Flood alerts remain in place across Norfolk amid heavy flooding in the region.

Many train services were cancelled after one was left stranded on the tracks at Haddiscoe and cars were covered in water in Lowestoft yesterday.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Monday (January 31) due to heavy winds caused by Storm Corrie.

The Met Office said that the north Norfolk coast from Hunstanton to Cromer is experiencing winds of up to 60mph.

UK Power Networks confirmed that some places in the region are without electricity with the area around Wymondham thought to be worst affected.

People have been told to "take care on coastal roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger".

The weather warning remains in place until 10am on Monday morning expected to be largely cloudy with sunny intervals for parts of Norfolk later in the afternoon.
