Firefighters are still dealing will lots of people getting stuck in flood waters in Suffolk.
Yesterday they warned drivers not to try to go through flooded roads, but last night they had to rescue drivers in Cretingham and Glemsford.
A crew from Needham Market had to go to the rescue of a person who's car was stuck in Cretingham at 5.22pm last night.
Then at 6.30pm the crews from Long Melford and Sudbury, and the water rescue vehicle from Bury St Edmunds was called to held someone who'd ended up in floodwater in Glemsford.
There's a warning that more heavy rain overnight might have cause new floods and higher water levels at already flooded roads.
MP Matthew Hancock cleared his diary yesterday to visit areas in West Suffolk affected by the flooding.
He told Heart: “I am very concerned about the flooding that hit West Suffolk. I know the emergency services and the authorities will be doing everything they can to help people affected. I will be working closely with them, but I would urge people to stay safe and in particular drive carefully and take steps to make sure you receive flood warnings quickly.”
