More stormy weather is set to hit the area today.

Heavy rain showers, gales and gusts of up to 40mph are to arrive in the area this morning and the unsettled  weather will continue for much of the day.

The rain will be falling on already-saturated ground meaning standing water could gather on low-lying roads making driving conditions treacherous.

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said there is a continued risk of river and surface water flooding across the area.

Unsettled weather, featuring frequent heavy showers and strong  winds, is expected to continue over the weekend, according to the Met Office.
