Three adults and two children have been rescued from cars trapped in floods caused by heavy rain.

Two vehicles got stuck in deep water on a road between St Clears and Llansteffan, Carmarthenshire, at about 16:40 GMT.

Both drivers and all passengers were pulled to safety by firefighters.

Between 30mm to 50mm of rain fell in some hilly locations and flood alerts are in place across south Wales, meaning more flooding is possible.

Earlier a yellow 'be aware' warning was issued for south and mid Wales.
