Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected across the entirety of the north west, west Scotland, west England and Wales on Sunday (12 May).

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for England which is in place from 12pm to 10pm.

The Met Office says “Heavy showers, some thundery, are likely to break out over parts of western Scotland during Sunday afternoon. Further spells of heavy rain, with a chance of thunder in places, most likely the south, follows from the south during Sunday evening.

"Some intense downpours are possible in a few places, giving 20 to 30 mm in less than hour and perhaps 30-50 mm over 2 to 3 hours leading to surface water flooding.”

The warnings cover most of Scotland, the north west and the north east down to the south coast of England.
