A flood alert for parts of Norfolk and Waveney has been issued for the next few days because of high tides in Great Yarmouth.
High water levels are expected to on Tuesday morning around Great Yarmouth and the Beccles Quay area.
The Environment Agency states on the website: "High water levels may last for a few days, until the high tides at Great Yarmouth have passed. This is due to a natural tide locking effect.
"High tidal water moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth, is currently restricting the normal drainage out to sea at low tide, of the Broads river system.
"We expect to see high water levels at Beccles Quay. It is likely that we may need to issue more warning messages for a wider area, over the next few days.

"Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger.
"We are monitoring the situation, and will update this message as necessary."
