Torrential rain brought flooding and disruption to roads across Suffolk yesterday.  

After heavy rainfall on Tuesday night, many roads across Suffolk were left underwater - leaving drivers to find alternative routes.

Suffolk Highways was called to a number of incidents of flooding on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

A spokesman said: "There are various locations of surface flooding on roads across the county, due to heavy rain."

Drivers were being urged to allow for extra time if they were planning to travel on the county's roads. 

Heavy rainfall on Tuesday saw a number of streets across the county flooded, including in Ashcroft Road in north Ipswich.

Water was seen spilling out onto the road from a drain, quickly spreading across the street. 

Nursery Road in Great Cornard, near Sudbury, was flooded during heavy downpours on Wednesday. 

The conditions also forced the Women's Suffolk FA Cup final to be suspended at Portman Road due to torrential downpours
