A severe weather warning has been issued for Cornwall - with heavy rain bringing the risk of localised flooding on Thursday.

It is as a wave of downpours sweeps through the Duchy, followed by showers.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning.

It is worried parts of the Duchy could see 4cm of rain by the end of the day.

A spokesperson said: "Scattered locally heavy showers, with the risk of some slow-moving thundery downpours, are likely to develop quite quickly during Thursday, only slowly dying out in the evening.  

"The public should be aware of the risk of localised  flooding.

"To the rear of the frontal zone scattered thundery showers are likely to develop bringing some further localised downpours during Thursday afternoon. Considerable local variations in rainfall are likely. However, totals of more than 40 mm are likely in places through the day with a risk of 15 mm falling in less than an hour locally."
