STRONG winds and high tides caused rivers to burst their banks and flood two major roads on the Suffolk-Norfolk border this morning.

The A12 was closed at Reydon on the River Blyth and the A143 blocked ay St Olaves on the River Waveney between Great Yarmouth and Beccles.

Meanwhile at Felixstowe there were spectacular scenes as waves struck the prom and shot 30ft into the air and swept into Undercliff Road East.

The Environment Agency had been warning for several weeks that because of strong northerly winds weather conditions along the east coast would bring a threat of flooding in some places.
