Heavy rain and thunderstorms will hit most of England and parts of Wales tomorrow with the possibility of flooding, forecasters say.

The Met Office has issued a yellow alert covering an area stretching from Kent to Cardiff to Middlesborough.

In these areas there is a risk of flooding, spelling errors on roads and rail connections.

They also warned that buildings could be damaged by lightning, hail or strong winds.

The alert begins at 4am tomorrow and ends at 5am Monday, with weather forecasters urging people to wait until the weather clears before making non-essential travel.

A Met Office spokesman said: “A heavy band of rain will move north through Sunday morning, followed by scattered heavy showers and scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon.

“Further heavy rain and thunderstorms are possible on Sunday evening and into the night, particularly in eastern parts of England, later to ease.”
