The Met Office has a yellow alert warning for rain on Sunday.

The alert meant there was a risk of surface water flooding and possible disruption to transport, the forecaster said.

It covered the whole South West of England and would stay in place until about 22:00 BST, it added.

The Torbay Steam Fair at Churston, near Brixham in Devon, has been cancelled as a result of overnight rain.
