Met Office issues severe weather warning for South West
A severe weather warning has been issued across the South West for Sunday.
The Met Office says torrential downpours could cause localised flooding, and gusts of up to 50mph are expected in some exposed areas.
It is also keeping an eye on a more serious weather front expected to arrive in the region on Sunday night.
The "yellow" alert, in force from 9am to midnight tomorrow, warns of 15-30mm of rain in many areas, 50mm in hillier locations, along with gales, particularly during the afternoon and evening.

But the weather service has also issued a more serious "amber" warning for Devon and Cornwall from 6pm on Sunday to 9am Monday morning.
A Met Office spokesperson said: "The centre of low pressure is expected to move north across the South West on Sunday night, leading to strong winds as it moves to the north, but notably heavy rain with the potential for some torrential downpours."
It says a further 25-50mm of rain is expected through the night and it is monitoring the storm.
