The UK is braced for more disruption, with another storm forecast for the second weekend running.

Storm Dennis “is likely to bring very heavy rain, flooding and disruption” in some areas, the Met Office has said.

Amber warnings for rain and yellow warnings for wind are in place for most of the country from Saturday afternoon and into Sunday evening.

It comes after Storm Ciara left hundreds of homes flooded and more than 500,000 without power.

The worst hit areas could see between 120-140mm of rainfall and gusts of up to 80mph over the weekend, the Met Office said.
