There are fears of further floods in Cornwall tomorrow with extremely heavy rain and gale-force winds on the way.

The Met Office has issued amber “be prepared” weather warnings across the county with up to 4cms of rain expected and winds causing "significant impacts".

The latest storm will arrive after six weeks of unsettled weather that has left the ground sodden.

A Met Office spokesman said the rain would arrive in the South West in the early hours of Friday.

The spokesman said: “With very wet ground conditions in Wales and the south of England and following repeated heavy rainfall events earlier in the week, the public should be aware of the potential for further flooding in places.”

Cornwall could be battered by massive waves again on Friday such as this one seen at Sennen last Saturday

Tomorrow’s heavy weather could continue to have an effect for days afterwards with waterways reaching their limits.

The Met Office issued an amber "be prepared" warning for winds of up to 80mph.

The spokesman said: “The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel as well as trees being uprooted and perhaps damage to buildings.

“The very strong winds will be accompanied by large waves along the south coast and the public should be aware of potentially dangerous conditions."

The spokesman said there was now "more confidence in the evolution of the system leading to a medium risk of significant impacts".
