Cornwall braces for more bad weather.

Heavy rain and 70 mile an hour winds hit last night, closing parts of the Glyn Valley and forcing the freight ship the Gry Maritha to cancel.

Five flood alerts are in place including the North Cornwall Rivers, West Cornwall Rivers, the Middle and Upper River Tamar, and the River Lynher.

Met Office forecaster Kate Reeves tells the Westcountry Tonight there are more storms to come: "During the afternoon, the wind picks up once again. It could reach 60mph along the coasts and over the hills. More heavy and blustery showers, perhaps turning to sleet or snow over higher ground.

"Looking further ahead it doesn't improve. We've got more heavy rain on Wednesday and strong winds. Slightly calmer on Thursday but still pretty blustery. We've got a big storm brewing on Friday".

Cornwall Council is urging anyone who is prone to flooding to consider having a supply of sandbags at the ready.
