More flooding is expected to hit Suffolk after alerts have been issued for the county. 

The Environment Agency has issued four flood alerts for Suffolk after a week of heavy rainfall. 

The alerts are for areas including Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Mildenhall and Mendham. 

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: "Groundwater levels are rising steadily in response to the recent rainfall and flooding is expected.

"River levels are expected to continue to rise. Take care on riverside roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger."

It comes after Suffolk was hit by torrential downpours last week which left a number of roads flooded.

Although flood alerts have been issued the Met Office has said that brighter weather and sunny spells are forecast for Suffolk this week.

Here is the forecast for the week:


Monday will start with clouds, possible rain and the chance of coastal gales. 

The clouds and rain will slowly clear to the east leaving brighter spells in the evening. 


It is forecast to be a much drier day with sunny spells and lighter winds. 

The Met Office said there is a chance of light rain overnight. 

Wednesday to Friday

The final three days next week are expected to be cloudy and largely dry with some light rain at times. 

It will be breezy with temperatures around average for the time of year.
