A month’s worth of overnight rain which fell in just an hour caused flooding in parts of Norfolk.

Sheringham and Swaffham were worst hit by Monday (October 2) night’s storm – with residents waking up to severe flooding. 

Norfolk Fire and Rescue responded to a total of 16 flooding incidents across the county after up to 60mm (2.3in) of rain fell in just an hour in some areas.

In the wake of the storm, a resilience meeting was held between the lead local flood authority Norfolk County Council (NCC) and the emergency services on Tuesday (October 2) morning to come up with an action plan to help those affected by the flooding.

Steffan Aquarone, the Liberal Democrats’ party prospective candidate for north Norfolk, sent his “deepest sympathies” to those affected by the flooding, and Sheringham councillor Liz Withington said North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) will assist residents in any way it can.

Norfolk County Council is urging anyone affected by the flooding, with floodwater in their homes, to get in touch via the council website.

The fire service is now mapping the locations they attended to assist other agencies with their work. 

The county council's Highways are assessing the roads, making repairs and checking gullies - and North Norfolk District Council are clearing roads of silt and debris.
