DORSET is set for another deluge after the Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain.

Outbreaks of rain will spread into parts of South West England, including Dorset, overnight persisting for much of Saturday daytime. Some heavy rainfall is likely in places.

The Met Office said given the continued saturated ground conditions, people should be aware of the likelihood of localised flooding.

Flood warnings remain in place for some Dorset rivers including the Lower Frome east of Dorchester and in the South Winterbourne valley around Winterbourne Abbas and Martinstown.
