FURTHER warnings for heavy rain have been issued for the Isle of Wight by the Met Office.

A 'be aware' warning is in force for the whole of the weekend. Warning are already in place for tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday.

The Met Office said: "There is potential for another spell of persistent and heavy rain to spread from the south to affect the southern half of the UK over the weekend. This will also be accompanied by strong to gale force winds which could exacerbate any possible disruption.

"The public should be aware of the potential for further localised flooding and disruption to transport. There is uncertainty in the severity and timing of the wind and rain and the areas affected and the public are advised to keep in touch with updates to this warning."

• The warning for heavy rain has now been lifted, however there is a warning for strong wind for parts of the Island on Sunday.
