Storms bring Welsh flood warnings

Rain in Wales

A woman has been rescued from a car and houses have had water pumped out of them after heavy rain hit Wales.

A number of flood warnings and watches have been issued for Wales, and the environment agency is keeping a "close eye" on the Midlands too.

Capel Curig in Conwy, North Wales, was rained on the most, with almost two inches falling overnight.

Forecasters say it's going to be a pretty wet Sunday across much of the UK and many rivers are on flood watch.

A spokeswoman for the Environment Agency said: "At the moment, although we haven't had any flooding or anything serious, we are keeping a close eye on the Midlands and Wales.

"We haven't got any serious flood warnings in place but if we have more rain, things could develop quite quickly."

Things should improve a little on Monday, but the wet windy weather is expected to make a return on Tuesday.
