Disruption and flooding could be possible later after a yellow weather warning was issued for Devon.

The Met Office says coastal areas in particular could be affected with up to 20 or even 30 millimetres of rain where the showers are most frequent, with gales possible as well.

It said because the ground is already saturated there is a chance of flooding in a few places and some travel disruption was likely, with increased journey times possible.

The yellow warning is in force up until tomorrow (Wednesday, November 27) lunchtime.
