A new weather warning has been issued for large swathes of England and Wales.

Strong winds and heavy rain are expected from 2pm on Saturday to 3am on Sunday morning.

The weather warning covers south Wales, southwest England and central southern England.

Heavy rain may lead to some flooding and disruption to travel, the Met Office has warned.

People in the affected areas in England should brace for potential flooding of homes and businesses, which has been deemed ‘likely’.

In Wales, such an eventuality has been described as ‘possible’ for over the weekend.

Bus and train services will be impacted and flooding on roads may make journeys longer in both countries, the Met Office added.

Meanwhile, a separate weather warning has been issued for Scotland with the likes of Dundee, Perth and Stirlingshire affected.

Potential flooding and delays to journeys is expected.

The latest weather warnings come after severe storms and heavy flooding hit parts of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire in Scotland.

Roads were left submerged in water and rivers burst their banks due to the heavy downpours.

Hazel Nairn, 71, tragically lost her life as she was swept away in floods while trying to rescue her dog, a Westie called Ruaridh.
