THE Met Office has issued a warning for heavy rain and strong winds for Sunday.

The ‘yellow’ warning, which is valid from 6am until 11.45pm on Sunday night, covers Dorset, Poole and Bournemouth.

There is a risk of further flooding in some areas.

The chief forecaster at the Met Office said: "Another Atlantic frontal system is forecast to cross the UK during Sunday. Rainfall accumulations of over 20 mm are expected in many western parts, with the greatest risk of flooding in southwestern areas along with Northern Ireland.

"Strong winds are also expected. Gales are likely, especially along exposed coasts, with gusts of 50 to 60 mph."

The Environment Agency has three flood warnings in place for South Winterbourne Valley, Middle Avon from Salisbury to Ringwood and Lower Frome from East Stoke to Wareham.
