The Met Office is warning residents that there is a small chance of flooding, which may cause difficult driving conditions and affect train and bus services.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Further heavy rain during Thursday, easing for a time in the north, but a further spell of heavy rain moving across the area during Friday.

"Rainfall totals will vary, but 20-40 mm is expected widely, with 50-60 mm in places and as much as 80 mm over some hills.

"This is in addition to the very high rainfall totals over the previous 24-36 hours over the north of the area, where an Amber warning remains in place."
