The Met Office has issued a "danger to life" weather warning as the UK braces itself for Storm Dennis - a second weekend of gusty weather.

Storm Dennis is forecast to batter large swathes of the country with 70mph winds and up to 140mm (5.5in) of rain in some areas.

Experts have also warned a "perfect storm" of heavy rain, strong winds and melting snow could leave hundreds of homes across the UK flooded this weekend.

The Environment Agency (EA) said the flood impact from the weather system is likely to be worse than last weekend’s Storm Ciara due to rain falling on already saturated ground.
