A severe weather warning has been issued for Cornwall for Sunday, with strong winds and heavy rain forecast.

It is the latest in a series of storms to sweep across the county, which have left the ground saturated, and have heightened flooding fears.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, will affect the UK on Sunday. Quite widespread accumulations of 10-20mm are then likely with locally in excess of 40mm possible over some higher ground.

"This additional rainfall, following the recent wet weather, means that the public should be aware of an increased risk of both surface water and river flooding as well as disruption to transport."

They added: "Windiest conditions are expected across western areas. Here tides will be very high, and the public should be aware of the risks of large waves and coastal flooding."
