The Environment Agency have warned of flood threats in many northern regions of England this weekend.

There is continued risk of surface water and river flooding this afternoon and tomorrow (Saturday) across Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire, North Derbyshire and the Yorkshire Pennines. Further heavy rain is expected across many regions during Friday and into Saturday morning - where the Met Office have warned we could see one month's rainfall in just 24 hours.
