An Environment Agency director has warned that floods in various parts of England could continue with the next tide.
Steve Moore issued a statement on Twitter saying: “For many locations this flood event will be repeated on at least the next tide and maybe the one after that”.
Police forces in Suffolk and Essex are reminding members of the public to avoid the temptation to have a look at the floods.
Essex is now bracing itself for the tidal surges which have battered Suffolk for the last number of hours.
Essex Police have issued severe flood warnings for seven new areas in Essex this morning.
