Heavy rain is expected to hit the region on Friday (November 22), with the Met Office putting a weather warning in place.

A yellow warning is in place until 12pm on Friday until 6pm on Saturday (November 23) with 'persistent rain' expected to sweep across the South West.

It warns flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely, and spray and flooding on the roads will make journey times longer.

Bus and train services are lively to be affected too.

A forecast from the Met Office said: "Showers on Friday morning will be replaced by more persistent rain during the afternoon and evening.
