Storm Callum is set to bring strong winds and rain to Cumbria. 

The Met Office said the intense area of low pressure - the third named storm of the season - will pass across northern England on Friday.

Severe gales are expected as well as heavy rain throughout Friday and Saturday. 

Yellow Met Office weather warnings are in force for the county on Friday and Saturday.

Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders, said: “Strong winds at this time of year can increase the rate of leaf fall which can potentially block drains or culverts and, with the heavy rainfall expected over Friday and Saturday, could well heighten the potential for flooding.

"There is also a risk that the high winds associated with Storm Callum, combined with high tides, may lead to some coastal impacts due to large waves.”
