Strong winds from Storm Pia have forced part of a popular country park near Norwich to close.

Whitlingham Country Park in Trowse has closed the woods and path section of the nature reserve to maintain the public's safety.

Paths around the broad have been flooded leaving the walking routes inaccessible. 

It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind in Norfolk that is set to last until 3pm.

Storm Pia has brought 65mph winds to the region and there are currently nine rivers at risk of flooding in Norfolk.

Greater Anglia will be replacing its Norwich to Lowestoft services with buses from 9pm today until midday on Friday following advice issued by the Environment Agency. 

A section of the line near Haddiscoe will be temporarily closed due to a significant risk of flooding after an expected tidal surge.
