Suffolk could be hit by further flooding as alerts remain in place for the second day in a row. 

The Environment Agency has warned that rivers across the county could burst their banks as water levels continue to rise during the heavy rainfall. 

This follows a yellow weather warning for wind and rain in Suffolk, as well as a threat of tornadoes as winds of up to 60mph could hit Suffolk.

A flood alert means that flooding is possible, and will be escalated to a warning by the Environment Agency when flooding is likely. 

Three rivers in Suffolk have a flood alert in place.

The River Lark also has rapidly rising water levels, with the area between Mildenhall and Sicklesmere most at risk, including through Bury St Edmunds. 

The areas around the Little Ouse River between Rickinghall and Hockwold are vulnerable to flooding, including The Black Bourn, Euston and Ickworth.

Low-lying roads and riverside areas around the River Dove from Mendlesham to Hoxne, including Eye, are also at risk.

In Newmarket, particularly along High Street, groundwater levels are holding steady and remain responsive to further rainfall.

The Environment Agency is watching the situation and will update the flood map at 6pm on Thursday, if not before.
