The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for torrential rains and winds to hit Northern Ireland, western parts of Scotland, Wales and northern parts of England as Storm Callum strikes this weekend. Gusts 50 to 60 miles per hour are likely in some places, with potential for gusts of 70 to 80 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills. "In addition, leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding".

Storm Callum will brings winds of up to 85mph, battering coastal towns with huge waves and risk of floods. Vehicles were stranded roads were submerged in Oban, while several landslips blocked the A83 in Argyll.

Storm Callum will end Britain's mid-week heatwave, which will see millions of Britons bake in another Indian summer.

Gary White, NRW's Duty Tactical Manager, said: "The current forecasted rain could cause flooding this week, especially in south and west Wales, and we are urging people to prepare themselves". On Saturday the rain could become even heavier.

Ms Donnelly said there would be a risk of flooding in places.
