Cornwall is being battered by more heavy rain - and it could mean more flooding misery.

The Met Office has put out a yellow weather warning for the whole of the Duchy - but says the north could be worst hit on Friday.

There are flood alerts out for north and west Cornwall's rivers, along with the middle and upper Tamar.

You can get the latest information from the Environment Agency here.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Bands of rain are expected to move eastwards across southwest England during Friday. Rainfall accumulations of 10 to 20 mm are expected over most parts, with 30 mm or more likely over parts of North Cornwall. With the ground saturated over much of the region, the public should be aware of the risk of further local flooding and associated disruption.

"Active frontal troughs will move eastwards across the UK during Friday, a combination of mild, moisture laden air and occasionally strong winds bringing further rain to many places."

It comes ahead of the weekend, when another yellow weather warning has already been issued for Cornwall on Sunday.

That will dump another 2cm of rain on Cornwall - driven on by winds of up to 60mph.
