Suffolk Fire and Rescue were called out to help four cars at Withersfield, Nowton, Whepsted and Great Thurlow. 

Both Norfolk and Suffolk police are warning people to take extra care in all the standing water caused by the heavy rain overnight.

  • Use dipped headlights

  • Increase your distance from the vehicle in front and be prepared to move further back if your visibility gets worse

  • Make sure your windscreen wipers are in good working order

  • Beware of slippery road surfaces, especially if the rain follows a long dry spell

  • Watch out puddles and areas of flooding.
