Rain to add to saturated lands and high river levels

Parts of Britain is set to be battered by flooding misery, as a band of rain is expected to arrive from the West this afternoon, the Met Office has said.

Helen Roberts, a forecaster from the agency added:

It'll be over south west England from midday and spread slowly eastwards across the rest of the country.

Monday night will see scattered showers in the West and into Tuesday morning but it will then be turning wet and windy on Wednesday and will be remaining unsettled.

There is a lot of saturated land and high river levels so any amount of rain is not good for those areas.
