More bad weather batters Cornwall.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for gale force winds and heavy rain on Monday and Tuesday.

In the last 48 hours, up to an inch has fallen on Cardinham near Bodmin.

Forecaster Marco Petagna warns the ground is still saturated after December's storms and that could mean a risk of localised flooding. Once again another warning's in force throughout the day tomorrow (Tuesday). Another weather system's pushing in from the south-west and we could, once again, see an inch of rain, possibly even locally two inches, especially over the hilltops. Once again it'll be combined with very strong winds and I think tomorrow (Tuesday) could well see gales in some exposed parts."

The Environment Agency has all the latest information on flood alerts, with one coming into force for the Upper River Tamar on Monday afternoon.
