Drivers were being warned after a road that was closed for weeks earlier was flooded again after a night of torrential rainfall. 

The A143 Compiegne Way in Bury St Edmunds was submerged underwater on Sunday morning and drivers were being warned of delays in the area. 

Pictures posted on social media showed both carriageways of the road flooded. 

Compiegne Way was closed from December 31, 2023, to January 25 this year as Suffolk Highways worked to clear flood water from the road. 

The closure sparked outrage with local residents after the key route in and out of the town was left closed for so long

Earlier this month MP for Bury St Edmunds Jo Churchill held a meeting with Suffolk Highways in regards with the flooding at Compiegne Way. 

She said: "Compiegne Way was a huge source of frustration to residents and businesses alike, and an issue I am contacted about long after the road had reopened.

"Therefore I was pleased to have a productive meeting with stakeholders including Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Highways, West Suffolk councillors, Steve Lumley Planning Ltd, Andrew Long of Hall Farm and British Sugar to discuss how working together we can mitigate the flooding over the short, medium and long term.

"By cross-collaboration workable solutions can be achieved. I will continue to keep constituents updated with progress on this issue."
