Motorists are being advised to take extra care on the county’s roads following prolonged and heavy periods of rain this afternoon, Tuesday 27 May.
There have been approximately 40 reports of flooding and standing water in many parts of Suffolk including:
A14 at Rougham and Stowmarket,
Dobbs Lane, Kesgrave,
Many roads in Ipswich including Yarmouth Road, Tuddenham Road, Fore Street, Bramford Road, Warwick Road and Henley Road.
Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, head of the joint Roads Policing Unit for Norfolk and Suffolk Police, said: “Motorists should drive to the conditions and allow extra time for their journeys home.
“Standing water and heavy rainfall makes driving conditions hazardous and I would urge motorists to reduce speed, use headlights and increase the distance between you and the car in front.”
