It may be Christmas Eve, but for many families across Norfolk their celebrations have been put on hold as communities have been left battling serious flooding.

From cars being stranded to homes and businesses damaged by water, this comes as another blow after an already difficult year.

But it was parts of South Norfolk and the Broads which felt the full force of the weather, which saw a month's worth of rain fall in just 24 hours on Wednesday, December 23.
