Forecasters are warning thunderstorms could hit parts of the Midlands with a risk of flooding after heavy rain at the weekend.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across some parts of the region.

Environment Agency flood warnings and alerts are in place in the Midlands.

An area of low pressure will bring the risk of quite heavy thundery showers into Tuesday. There's definitely a risk of flooding. Thunderstorms are a concern - there could be as much as 30mm to 40mm of rain. That's quite a lot of rain flowing in quite a short period of time.

The wet weather comes after a week in which Britain was hit by hot temperatures and thunderstorms, with the heatwave causing problems for train and air passengers.
