Heavy rain in south and east England on Friday and overnight into Saturday morning will bring a risk of localised surface water flooding, particularly for parts of Essex and Kent.

If you’re driving away for the summer holidays, as always, please remember not to drive through flood water. People are urged to check their flood risk on our website, especially if you’re holidaying in an area where you’re not familiar with the flood risk.

– John Curtin, flood risk manager at the Environment Agency
