It was dark skies and rumbles of thunder across Norfolk last night as storms hit the region - again.

Poringland, Hemsby, Wymondham, Talcolneston, Gorleston and Dereham felt the brunt of the thunderstorms, which travelled across the county, with reports of tornadoes in Great Yarmouth.

The turbulent weather came after a weekend of flooding from storm Bertha, which left houses and businesses submerged.

Although fire crews braced themselves for another deluge of calls after the busy weekend, the night appeared to go without incident.

And the storms made way for a perfect photo opportunity for budding photographers - with rainbows appearing in Hevingham, Norwich and Woodbastwick.

  • Most of the noise over Norwich isn't coming from the Thunder but the roar of jet engines. All day Monday and again this morning.
