Several Suffolk rivers are fit to burst their banks after heavy rainfall battered the county yesterday.

The Environment Agency has issued a flood alert today (November 19) as flooding looks possible around Suffolk. 

While the rain has stopped, the agency warns that the river levels will change quickly in the event of further downpours, and scattered showers have been forecast in the area today and tomorrow.
