It is often a bit of grit that has got in with the fuel and jammed the float valve open. If you turn the tap off and run the engine until the carb is dry, then turn the fuel on again, the flush of fuel may dislodge the grit. If that doesn't work you will have to remove the float bowl and clean it properly. May be the tiny plunger spring in the float needle is weak or the plunger sticking, only cure for that is a new needle.
