Flood warnings remain in place in across parts of the UK as heavy rain continues to cause disruption.

Torrential rain led to flooded homes, road closures and havoc on public transport across parts of the country on Friday.

Dozens of flood warnings and alerts were in place as the latest downpours continued to fall on ground already saturated after three months of record-breaking rainfall across the UK.

Here is the full list of areas affected by 'severe flood warnings':

With continuing downpours on Friday night, the Environment Agency warned that the country was "not out of the woods yet" in the latest floods to hit the country in recent weeks. There are now more than 60 severe flood warnings and 162 less serious flood alerts. Torrential rain has affected areas in the Midlands, Anglia and the north East.

Almost 100 properties were flooded, the M50 was among a number of roads closed by the bad weather and flooding and landslips caused delays on major rail routes.

Six people had to be rescued from a flooded caravan park in North Yorkshire after heavy rain left the site under 2ft (0.6m) of water. And events up and down the country were cancelled on the grounds of health and safety.

Tony Waters, Deputy Chief Forecaster at the Met Office said that more rain is expected over the weekend.

Rainfall totals could be 20-40 mm widely across warning areas, but some places could see around 100 mm of rain through Friday and into Saturday.

Given the saturated ground from the record rainfall in June, this could cause significant disruption – including difficult driving conditions and flooding in some areas.

The Highways Agency also warned drivers to take extra caution when travelling over the weekend. Road users are being advised to check the weather forecast and road conditions. Simon Sheldon-Wilson, Director of Traffic Management at the Highways Agency, said:

I advise drivers to plan their journeys before setting out, check the weather and traffic conditions, leave extra time for their journeys if travel conditions are poor, and delay their journey if the weather becomes severe.

Rain and spray can reduce visibility and when the road is wet it can take up to twice as long to stop so it makes sense to slow down when it's raining. It’s also important to remember that surface water may affect motorways and major A roads where heavy rainfall occurs.

ITV News correspondent Paul Davies reported flash flooding from across the UK.

The worst affected area on Friday and into Saturday morning is expected to be south west England, which has already seen extremely heavy rain, with 1.6in (40mm) falling in just half an hour in Somerset this afternoon.

Forecasters said a further 3.2in (80mm) is expected to fall across the South West tonight.

The north East, the Midlands and Anglia will be the worst affected areas in this weekend's torrential downpours.
