Yellow MET Office weather warning when heavy rain and storm winds submerge UK roads


Heavy rain and storm winds have been predicted to hit the country on Britain's second weekend at its second national lockdown.

The MET office has issued yellow weather warnings in the south of England and across Northern Ireland as both areas are hit by heavy rains and winds.

Much of the cliff at a beauty spot on the Jurassic Coast collapsed yesterday after heavy rain overnight on the South West Coast Path next to the Highlands End Caravan Park at Eype near Bridport in Dorset.

This section of the coastal path was closed and diverted in early November after major rifts appeared.

The collapse took place on the campsite of the holiday park with the border fence hanging in the air.
