The warning is in place until 8pm tonight and forecasts some flooding of a few homes and businesses, perhaps leading to some damage to buildings.

In the statement, a spokesman for the Met Office explained: "There is a good chance driving conditions will at times be affected by spray and standing water, leading to some minor journey delays.

"A few places could receive 20-30 mm of rain within an hour.

"As is the nature of showers however, some places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day.

"Some short term loss of power and other services due to lightning strikes is possible. Delays to train services are possible."
