Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said: “Whilst the heaviest rain has cleared from Northern Ireland and Scotland, England and Wales will continue to see heavy rain on Sunday, with a risk of severe flooding in places.

“In particular, heavy rain has led to severe flooding across parts of south Wales triggering a red rain warning, where around 140mm of rain  in total could fall, before it gradually eases this afternoon.”
