A FLOOD warning has been issued for Dorset as heavy rain moves slowly across the county.

The Environment Agency has issued the warning for the whole of the south-west as the rain falls on already saturated ground.

Earlier this month the agency urged residents to sign-up to flood alerts after Dorset was put at high risk of a possible winter deluge following the record breaking wet summer.

Dorset Police have asked motorists to be vigilant and drive with care in the adverse driving conditions.
