DORSET is braced for more downpours as the Met Office issues a warning for more rain for the next few days.

The Environment Agency has said Dorset is one of the counties they are including as a key area of concern due to the already saturated ground.

The yellow 'be prepared' warning for rain will be in place from 3am on Saturday morning until 12noon on Saturday.

Another warning for rain is in place from 6pm on Sunday until 12noon on Monday.

The Environment Agency has also issued a flood warning for Ringwood and Fordingbridge and areas in close proximity to the River Avon, and for the B3347 from Christchurch to Sopley Road.
