Saturday, June 2 is set to be a washout with a warning in place for heavy rain across the county and a risk of flooding.

The warning is in place from 6am on Saturday until 8pm.

A spokesman for The Met Office said: 'There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

'Where flooding occurs there is a chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.'

They added: 'Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. There is also a small chance that either flooding or lightning strikes could lead to power cuts or loss of other services to some homes and businesses.'

Norwich-based Weatherquest predicted that things would settle down and brighten by Sunday.
