Several flood warnings were issued for Suffolk this morning after heavy rain continued to cause problems in the county, but have now been removed.
Flood warnings are the second highest level of alert, indicating that flooding is expected and immediate action will be required.
They were in place for low lying areas close to the River Lark at Sicklesmere and Bury St Edmunds, the River Brett from Lavenham to Higham and the Stour Brook from Haverhill to Sturmer.
The warnings for those areas have now been removed.
Flood alerts, which indicate that flooding is possible and people should be prepared, are still in place for 12 locations across the county.
