Torrential rain unleashes more misery as Met Office issues weather warnings

Heavy rain, flooding and thunderstorms are forecast from the start of next week, with the recent shocking weather showing no signs of improving.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for rain for much of Wales from Monday to Tuesday.

On its website, the Met warned that "flooding of a few homes and business is likely" in these areas.

It added: "Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer."

Transport is also expected to be affected in parts of the country, with the Met Office warning Brits: "Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer."
