Flooding is expected in Felixstowe and Bawdsey today with more flood alerts issued for the Suffolk coast. 

The Environment Agency has issued a flood warning — its second most serious type of warning — for Bawdsey Quay and Felixstowe Ferry. 

Higher than usual tides are expected due to Storm Corrie between 9.15am and 1.15pm today, Monday, January 31. 

Flood alerts — the third most serious type of warning — have also been put in place for the Suffolk and Essex coast from Felixstowe to Clacton including Orwell and Stour estuaries, the coast at Southwold, from Lowestoft to Bawdsey and the tidal Deben estuary.

People have been told to "take care on coastal roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger".
