Forecasters have issued a warning of severe weather across Wales on Sunday.

The Met Office said there was a chance of heavy rain, strong winds with large waves along the coast which could cause disruptions and affect transport.

The yellow warning was issued as the remains of Atlantic hurricane Bertha makes its way towards the UK.

However, the Met Office said it was hard to forecast exactly where the storm would go and that it may pass without problems.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "There is the potential for widespread rainfall totals of more than 50mm and coastal gusts of over 60mph, along with large waves."
