Signs at a problematic ford are set to be replaced after four vehicles have been pictured stuck in flood water since the start of the year. 

Wash Lane in Combs Ford, near Stowmarket, has witnessed heavy flooding on several occasions in 2024 due to the continued deluge of rain Suffolk has experienced. 

An Anglian Water van was pictured in deep flood water on January 5, while another van was seen stuck on Friday.

Two lorries have also found themselves wedged in the ford and had to be pulled out.

Suffolk Highways has confirmed the water depth gauge at the ford will be replaced after it was damaged in floods. 

A spokesman said: "Suffolk Highways has visited site and found there are two ford warning signs in place as well as a water depth gauge.

"An order has been raised to replace the gauge following damage caused by flooding and road incidents.

"Additional road signs can be requested via the local county councillor or the parish council to address the HGV concerns; however, these will need to be externally funded."
