The yellow weather warning follows days of heavy rain and flooding across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, and the wider area, amid Storm Ciarán.

The conurbation was battered by the storm overnight on Wednesday.

The following morning, a number of roads were closed, trains cancelled, and schools shut due to heavy flooding. 

BCP Council also reported that sixty trees came down overnight, with some of them being in the Lower Gardens, Bournemouth, while Bourne Stream was close to overflowing.
