THE Met Office have issued a weather warning for the North West of England on Sunday.

Periods of heavy rain are expected across the region, including Cheshire, for much of the day, bringing the risk of further flooding.

The warning, which applies from 9am until midnight will see outbreaks of rain spreading across the UK during Sunday with prolonged spells of heavy rain likely across Wales and northwest England.

Following heavy rain in these areas during previous days, further flooding impacts and disruption to transport is likely.

The heaviest rainfall is expected across the hills and mountains of northwest Wales and Cumbria.

Strong winds are also likely with potential for leaf fall to exacerbate flooding in places.
