UK: UK weather forecast: 45 flood warnings and alerts as heavy downpours continue
Flooding is expected across Britain today as wet and windy conditions ravage the country.
The Environment Agency has issued six flood warnings for east, west and north-east England, meaning rivers could brim their banks in these areas.
There are also 32 flood alerts in force, raising the prospect of flooding in west, central, north-west, east and north England.
A further seven flood alerts are in place in Scotland, affecting Ayrnshire and Arran, central Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway, Dundee and Angus, the Scottish Borders, Tayside and west-central Scotland.
