Five flood alerts have been issued for parts of Gwynedd, Conwy and Carmarthenshire after another day of heavy rain.

The area includes the north Gwynedd catchment, Conwy, Glaslyn and Dwyryd, Maddawch and Wnion, and the Upper Towy.

The Environment Agency says people need to remain vigilant.

A Met Office weather warning for heavy showers was issued on Friday and remains in force until 18:00 BST on Saturday for the whole of Wales.

"The agency is urging people to sign up to their flood warning service, which sends alerts by text, phone and email to people whose homes are at risk of flooding from rivers and the sea," said an Environment Agency Wales spokesperson.

"Care should also be taken as driving conditions may be hazardous, and people should listen to traffic reports for advice and for any disruption locally."

The Met Office forecasters said the rain should begin to clear through Saturday evening, and winds will ease, to give a brighter Sunday with some sunny spells and light scattered showers.

The latest details on current flood alerts can be found online or by contacting the Environment Agency Floodline on 0845 988 1188.
