THE Met Office has issued a 'yellow' warning for heavy rain on Friday.

The warning for Dorset, Poole and Bournemouth is valid from 12.10am until 11.45pm and says accumulations of up to 30mm are possible in some areas.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Bands of rain are expected to move eastwards across south and southwest England during Friday. Rainfall accumulations of 10 to 20 mm are expected over most parts, with 30 mm or more possible over some areas, especially windward coasts and hills.

"With the ground saturated over much of the region, the public should be aware of the risk of further local flooding and associated disruption."

The chief forecaster added: "Active frontal troughs will move eastwards across the UK during Friday, bringing further strong winds and heavy rain to many places.

"The combination of very moist air and strong southerly winds will give rainfall accumulations that have the potential for flooding over parts of south and southwest England where the ground remains saturated."

Let us hope people from a certain part of the Iford floodplain can take some time out from that rather curious Inquiry into the 'surprise' flooding of their site a couple of weeks ago to heed yet another flood alert headline helpfully provided here - not that some of them seem to have taken very much notice of the previous well published flood warnings!

Hopefully it will all be washed away, once & for all. It's boring now & enough column inches have been given to this tedious 'story'.
It was covered far better in 1979. Real reporters worked for the ECHO then, instead of 16 year old interns.....
