A yellow weather warning is in force for Suffolk and Essex, with the downpours leaving driving conditions hazardous.

A police spokesman said: "The conditions on the roads this morning are very difficult and it's pretty bad out there."

The rain is expected to ease off around 10am but for now drivers have been advised to drop their speed.
