Floods warnings remain in place across England, Scotland and Wales

Parts of England and Scotland are continuing to be affected by high winds and rain brought by the remnants of Hurricane Bertha.

The Met Office has a yellow ‘be aware’ warning in place for rain for parts of northern England and an amber warning in Scotland.

It also has a yellow wind warning for northern England and south-east Scotland.

Floods are expected in parts of north-east and north-west England, Somerset, north Wales and Scotland.

The Environment Agency has six flood warnings in place – meaning floods are “expected” – and a further 47 flood alerts for the affected parts of England and Wales.

The Scottish Environment Agency has more than 20 flood warnings in place, covering Aberdeenshire, Caithness and Sutherland, Findhorn, Nairn Moray, Tayside and Speyside.

The Met Office’s amber ‘be prepared’ warning for rain is for the Grampian and Highlands and Eilean Siar areas of Scotland.

Yesterday, many areas of the UK saw up to 25mm of rain, with Snowdonia in Wales receiving up to 60mm – one month’s worth – in just a few hours.
