"Water will be going in to the Ouse Washes flood storage reservoir and on to the A1101 Wash Road/Welney Causeway. This could lead to the road being closed by Norfolk County Council," the Environment Agency said.

"People who may be affected are advised to check the nearby electronic signage which will update drivers of the current water levels on the road.

"Drivers are urged to stay safe and not drive through flood water. Just 30cm of flood water can move a car.

"You can keep up to date with flood alerts and warnings for your area via the website."

Remi Matthews rejoins Argyle for rest of the season

Hayley Westcott

BBC News Online

Goalkeeper Remi Matthews has rejoined Plymouth Argyle for the rest of the Sky Bet League One season, the club has said.

The 23-year-old made seven appearances earlier in the campaign on emergency loan from Norwich before a leg injury at Portsmouth in November curtailed his stay.

He'll resume his Argyle career in the final game of 2017 at Blackpool on Saturday.

With all three of Argyle’s contracted professional goalkeepers – Luke McCormick, Robbert te Loeke and Kyle Letheren – sidelined by injury, the first part of Remi’s stay will be covered by the EFL’s emergency loan regulations.

That will be converted into a season-long loan when the transfer window opens after the holidays, the club added.
