There is a severe weather warning out for Cornwall.

Forecasters say the Duchy will be battered by heavy rain and winds on Wednesday morning, with gales along the coasts.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Heavy rain, accompanied by strong winds, is expected to spread north during Wednesday morning and afternoon, to affect parts of western England, much of Wales and Northern Ireland.

"The heaviest rain is likely to clear from the south by evening, but the strong winds will peak a little later. The public should be aware of the possibility of surface water flooding and the likelihood of difficult conditions for travel and some summer holiday pursuits."

The Environment Agency said a flood warning had been issued for the upper Tamar, around Bude, Helebridge, Bridgerule, Canworthy Water and Yeolmbridge.

It should be turning brighter with showers by lunchtime.
