A Met Office weather warning which predicted a thunderstorm for Carlisle is now expected to miss the city.

The yellow thunderstorm weather warning is still in place until 9pm, but will now only affect southern and eastern Scotland.

It is predicted that the storm will hit Langholm and areas south, but stops before reaching the borders.

Areas west of Lockerbie - including Lockerbie itself - are expected to be unaffected.
