PEOPLE have been warned about disruption as even more heavy rain looks set to hit the region at the end of the week.

The Met Office has issued a yellow alert warning on Thursday and Friday as it warns downpours will come in from the west.

A Met Office spokesman said people should expect unsettled weather until the weekend.

He said: ‘The weather is remaining unsettled and cool for July, with shower spells and relatively limited brightness.

‘Tomorrow will remain cloudy for much of the day, with a risk of showers.

‘There will be some respite overnight between Wednesday and Thursday, but the dry patch doesn’t last long.

‘Expect further rain spreading in from the west. Any rain onto saturated ground may create problems, with a risk of disruption to transport at the end of the week.’

An Environment Agency spokesman said that the flood risk remained high across England as the ground was heavily saturated and river levels were exceptionally high.
