Flooding warnings ahead of rain
Flooding in Ecclesfield
Many parts of Yorkshire suffered from flooding a week ago
Weather forecasters have warned people across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire they may face more flooding.

Predictions of very heavy rain have been forecast for almost 24 hours non-stop across the whole area.

Forecasters said up to four inches of rain may fall, which could cause flooding to already saturated areas.

A week ago, many parts of Yorkshire suffered from severe flooding. Homes, roads and tourist sites had to be evacuated and closed because of water.

A 17-year-old soldier died after being swept away during floods in North Yorkshire.

Private Andrew James Borkertas, from Grantham, Lincolnshire, went missing after falling into the swollen Risedale Beck on Hipswell Moor on 15 June.
