The areas around the Little Ouse River between Rickinghall and Hockwold are at risk, including The Black Bourn.

Euston and Ixworth could also suffer flooding.

The River Lark also has rapidly rising water levels, with the area between Mildenhall and Sicklesmere most at risk, including through the town of Bury St Edmunds. 

Low-lying roads and riverside areas around the River Dove from Mendlesham to Hoxne, including Eye, are also vulnerable to flooding 

In Newmarket, particularly High Street, groundwater levels are holding steady and remain responsive to further rainfall.

The Environment Agency is monitoring the situation closely and will regularly update the alerts and warnings if further rain falls over the coming days.
