New weather warning as remains of hurricane Bertha set to strike

Weather forecasters have issued another warning of heavy rain for Cumbria.

A warning is already in place until 11pm today and the Met Office has now highlighted "a particularly volatile situation" on Sunday.

But it says the county should escape the worst of the remnants of hurricane Bertha.

The remains of the storm front are due to reach the UK in the early hours of Sunday.

Although it is no longer technically a hurricane, having lost some of its ferocity, the storm is still expected to bring heavy rain, strong winds and large waves, disrupt transport and make outdoor activities dangerous.

Forecasters expect southern England, the Midlands and Wales to bear the brunt, but say there is uncertainty as to the course the storm will take.

The Met Office has revised its initial warning for today but still says heavy and possibly thundery showers are likely.
