Large parts of the south remain on flood alert after torrential rain over the weekend. Heavy rain caused flash flooding in some places, with Dorset and Wiltshire among the worst affected. Bournemouth received the most rainfall in the UK, with 30mm falling in just 24 hours from 5pm on Saturday.
The Dorset town usually receives 100mm of rain on average for the whole of November. Julian Mayes, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, said: "It's not exceptional rainfall, but the last two weeks have been fairly wet and it's falling onto saturated ground which means the effect is more immediate."
