Part of Cornwall is put on a yellow weather warning - as the Duchy is battered by rain.

The Met Office says east Cornwall is set to be worst hit with the risk of surface water flooding.

A spokesperson said: "An area of low pressure moving north from France will bring a combination of rather persistent and sometimes heavy rainfall, as well as strong winds blowing from the northeast, with gusts in excess of 40 mph in places for a time.

"The main rain area will clear from the southeast corner of England by the morning, but further heavy, slow-moving and potentially thundery showers are likely to occur. The combination of rain and wind is likely to lead to unpleasant conditions on the roads with spray and surface water, the latter perhaps exacerbated by leaves blocking drains.  

"15 to 25 mm of rain will fall in many parts of the warning area, with a few places likely to catch in excess of 40 mm, most likely over parts of southwest England and the West Country and also where showers line up into bands across east and southeast England."
