Further flooding is expected in parts of mid, south west and north Wales as a yellow "be aware" warning for more heavy rain has been issued.

The Met Office said 8cm (3in) of rain could fall on high ground on Tuesday.

Natural Resources Wales has issued four flood warnings and advised people to be careful near swollen rivers.

The weather alert is for Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd and Powys.

On Monday, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service warned motorists not to drive through flood water after four people had to be rescued.

Several areas flooded at the weekend with pumps used to reduce flood water in homes.

Tuesday's flood warnings cover Conwy Valley, Wrexham's Lower Dee Valley, Tenby in Pembrokeshire, and the Dyfi Valley in Powys.
