The floods are due to high tidal water moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth which is currently restricting drainage out to sea at low tide via the Broads river system.

The high spring tides are due to peak on Tuesday into Wednesday and are expected to fall away from Thursday onwards, allowing the rivers to drain out to sea at low tide as normal.

Floodline are currently monitoring the situation.
