Warnings for rain and high winds are in place for many parts of Scotland, some still recovering from serious flooding.

Much of southern and central Scotland is covered by a Met Office yellow alert for rain valid from 06:00 on Wednesday to 03:00 on Thursday.

A warning of winds of between 50mph and 60mph has also been issued for southern regions for Wednesday afternoon.

Severe gales and rain are also expected in the Highlands with downpours likely in Grampian too.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) issued 16 flood warnings and six flood alerts on Wednesday morning.

Mopping up operations are ongoing across many areas of Scotland following flooding due to Storm Desmond over the weekend.

Tayside, the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway were among the worst affected parts of the country.
