The Environment Agency has also issued flood alerts for Sheffield - covering River Don and its tributaries from Penistone to Kelham Island in Sheffield; River Sheaf and Porter Brook and the Blackburn Brook Catchment from High Green to Meadowhall, including Charlton Brook, Ecclesfield Brook and Whitley Brook.

A spokesman for Sheffield Supertram said: "Supertram are currently experiencing severe delays on all routes due to adverse weather conditions and traffic congestion."

The purple tram route has been suspended, while the blue route is currently operating Malin Bridge to Sheffield Station and Halfway to Gleadless Townend.

It comes as heavy rain continues to affect the city in the wake of Storm Angus.

Widespread heavy rain and showers are forecast for most parts of England over the next 36 hours and could cause river and surface water flooding, the Environment Agency said.

People living in Yorkshire and the Humber have also been warned to expect 40-50mph gusts, a Met Office spokesman said.
