The Environment Agency said: "The Whittlesey Wash flood storage reservoir is being operated to protect nearby communities from flooding. The rising levels in the Wash will result in flooding of the B1040 road."

The good news for motorists is that the forecast for this week is much drier, meaning the warnings may end.
