The Met Office has issued a warning for “severe weather” this Sunday

The yellow “be aware” warning is for Yorkshire and the Humber and is in operation from 12.15am to 11.45pm.

Residents are told to expect heavy rain and strong winds, which could lead to flooding.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “There is the potential for severe weather over much of the UK during Sunday as a depression tracks over, or close to, the UK. There continues to be a great deal of uncertainty in the forecast but the public should be aware of the risk of flooding due to heavy rain as well as very strong winds and large waves, particularly on the southern side of the depression.

“Given the unseasonable nature of the weather this could be sufficient to disrupt transport and make outdoor activities dangerous.

“This is a particularly volatile situation, and this alert is likely to be updated as the event approaches. The public are advised to keep up to date with the latest forecasts and alerts through the weekend.”
