Flooding-prone A12 to be upgraded

A section of the A12 in Suffolk which is notorious for flooding is to undergo a 1.8m upgrade.

The section of road at Blythburgh was among a series of improvements set to cost 66m which were announced by the Department for Transport.

Waveney MP Bob Blizzard said the work was "vital" and he was "delighted" by the announcement.

He said: "At the moment the road often ends up under water during heavy rainfall or very high tides."

He added: "This work will protect Lowestoft's main link to the rest of the country."
