Cornwall is issued a yellow weather warning.

The Met Office says heavy rain and high winds will batter the Duchy all day tomorrow.

We are warned that could mean localised surface water flooding.

A spokesperson from the Met Office said: "An area of rain is expected to push north across the UK through Saturday. The rain will be persistent and sometimes heavy, especially across western areas at first, and later over northern areas. There remains some uncertainty in the eastward extent across England and Wales, and then, during the afternoon and evening, how far the rain will push into Scotland: there is the possibility that the warning area will be revised again, either later today or early on Saturday. The rain should clear much of southwest England and then parts of south Wales during the day. Strong winds will present an additional hazard later in the day along areas adjoining the northern part of the Irish Sea.

"The public are advised to be aware of the risk of disruption to travel and outdoor activities due to localised surface water flooding."
