Much of the United Kingdom will experience some heavy rain on Friday, with further spells at times during Saturday, as Storm Callum passes to the northwest of the UK.

The Met Office has warned heavy rainfall moving in from the South West could present a risk to life and issued a 36-hour amber warning for Wales.

There is a wind warning in place from 3am to midnight on Friday, which covers Northern Ireland and parts of Western Scotland and warns of gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour in some places, with the potential for gusts of 70 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills.

Flybe tweeted: "If you are flying with us on Friday 12th October 2018, please continue to check in as normal and regularly check our flight info page for any further updates".

The storm has brought very strong winds and heavy rain in many places, with the western side of the country experiencing some of the strongest winds.

The treacherous conditions led to major disruption for travellers in the aftermath of Storm Callum on Friday, with several flights and ferry crossings cancelled.

THE Met Office has upgraded its weather warning for later this week, predicting that an incoming storm could bring deep flood water.
