Drivers have been urged to move abandoned cars in Framlingham as flooding from Storm Babet eases.

East Suffolk Council has asked motorists to move cars in an attempt to clear roads as standing water recedes. 

A spokesperson for East Suffolk Council said: "We continue to respond as part of a multi-agency approach to the flooding caused by Storm Babet. There is particular focus in the district on issues in Framlingham, where a large number of households and properties have been impacted.

"As part of the response to events, we would ask anyone intending to travel to Framlingham to consider whether their journey is necessary and to avoid the area if at all possible. If your journey is necessary, please consider parking safely outside the town.

"The Council also recognises that some car owners had little choice but to abandon vehicles during the worst of the storm yesterday. However, as waters recede, and to ensure safe passage for response vehicles, could owners please now seek to remove their vehicles, if possible, at the earliest opportunity."

The council has set up an emergency operations base at the Framlingham Town Council office on Church Street. 

Anyone looking to leave a donation to support local emergency relief can do so there.
