A road which was closed due to impassable flooding is set to reopen. 

Suffolk Highways installed an emergency closure on the B1127 Wrentham Road near Southwold on Wednesday after severe flooding submerged part of the road on Wednesday.

Witnesses believed the water was about eight inches deep and about half a mile from Potters Bridge, which is infamous for flooding.
