Very wet and windy weather to spread east during the course of Thursday.

The Met Office has issued a further amber warning following heavy rain yesterday (Wednesday).

More “very wet and very windy” weather is set to hit East Devon today.

The Met Office says: “A spell of very wet and very windy weather is expected to move west to east across many parts of the UK during Thursday.

“Coming so soon after the heavy rain which fell in many places on Wednesday, this is likely to provoke further issues with flooding.

“Additionally, winds will gust to 50 to 60 mph in many places and even 70mph in some exposed western areas.

“In view of the wind and rain combination, the public should be prepared for transport disruption.”

Updates will appear here.
