Roads in villages near Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket and in Framlingham flooded after heavy rain





A number of roads in Suffolk are flooded following heavy rainfall.

Several flood alerts are in place across the county due to downpours yesterday and today.

The rain is forecast to last until this afternoon.

In Beyton, Thurston Road is waterlogged but passable.

The A1088 between Norton and Elmswell is also flooded but remains passable.

Wash Lane, near Onehouse, is submerged, with a vehicle stuck in the ford and a resident has once again spoken of their disbelief on social media today that people continue to try to drive through flood water in the area.

Nowton Road, next to Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds, is waterlogged.

Fairfield Road, in Framlingham, is also flooded.

The Greene King entrance, in Cullum Road, Bury St Edmunds, is under water.

A spokesperson for Greene King said: “Despite the heavy rain, deliveries to our customers are unaffected.

“As with the flooding that occurred last month, we are having to be a bit more flexible in our Draught Beer operations whilst we wait for the flood water to subside.

“Our team members are using an alternative route to the staff car park, which is used on the rare occasion that the access road floods.”

Kevelaer Way, near the Great Churchyard and Abbey Gardens, in Bury St Edmunds is also flooded.
