Rain is set to move northwards across much of England, with the heaviest rain forecast for the afternoon and evening.

While up to 25mm is likely to fall ‘quite widely’, some areas could see up to 60mm – 2.3 inches- the Met Office warned.

"This brings a risk of flooding and disruption, but the situation is uncertain, such that the likelihood of this across any given county is small," the Met Office said.

Conditions are set to improve on Tuesday.
