The winter weather is taking it’s toll on Suffolk.

Rivers have burst their banks, fields are flooded and the coast has taken a battering this afternoon - although the high winds of earlier are expected to die down over the coming hour.

Photographer Lucy Taylor has been in Felixstowe filming the effects of the weather today, while iwitness members have this week been sending in photos of flooding.

Frances Crickmore sent us photos of the waterlogged fields at her farm in Bungay, and Barry Pullen sent then and now photos showing how flooding at Needham Lakes is worse than in 2012.

  • I heartily agree with "beerlover". It's sad that illiteracy abounds.
