Heavy downpours lead to Norfolk and Suffolk flooding
Heavy rain in the early hours across parts of eastern England has led to homes and buildings being flooded.
Areas of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, including Risbygate, Northgate and Bury Park Drive, were found waterlogged by firefighters.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said it had attended 10 incidents, including call-outs to Felixstowe and Newmarket.
In Fakenham, Norfolk, a Tesco supermarket re-opened after water breached the store.
Drivers are being warned not to speed by Suffolk Police after cars - one with a baby on board - were seen driving fast and too close together through standing water on the A14.
