People in East Suffolk are being warned that flood water levels may not have reached their peak, despite rain easing in the county. 

Suffolk County Council has confirmed this is because the flood water entering Suffolk's rivers is flowing downstream towards the coast at a faster rate than expected, meaning water levels could rise before they drop. 

People and businesses are being urged to follow flood warnings and alerts from the Environment Agency and take action as advised. 

A major incident is still in place in Suffolk but people are no longer being asked not to travel if absolutely necessary. 

Key public safety advice includes not driving through flood water, keeping alert for surface water, being aware of debris left on roads by the flood water, retrieving abandoned vehicles, and avoiding playing and swimming in flood water. 

There are 24 flood warnings and 37 flood alerts in place across East Anglia.
