A deluge of heavy rain caused flash flooding in Thetford on Tuesday (July 27).

The storm started in the west of Norfolk and slowly moved east across Norwich, eventually spreading to coastal areas including Great Yarmouth.

However, the storms are set to stay at bay for now as the Met Office forecasts predict today (July 29) to be much more settled with bright sunny spells throughout the day and little chance of rain for most parts of Norfolk.
