This carried on from the warning issued by the Met Office for today which forecast thunderstorms from 12pm until 8pm.

The warning for earlier today caused many to postpone or cancel jubilee celebrations.

Dan Holley, meteorologist for Norwich-based Weatherquest, posted rainfall figures on Twitter for the 24 hours to 10am on Sunday, June 5.

This showed that Denver in west Norfolk had seen 44mm fall, which is around 80pc of the village's average rainfall for June and was the most measured in the East of England for that timeframe.

The Met Office has warned that the heavy rain could cause flooding in businesses and homes.

It also said that transport services may be disrupted and water on roads may cause delays.
