The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain in Derbyshire between Midnight and 6.00pm on Sunday, February 20.

This means that heavy rain is expected to lead to some disruption in the county. Flooding of some homes and businesses is likely, and the wet conditions may lead to longer journey times.

This follows on from two storms- Dudley and Eunice- which have caused problems for travellers in Derbyshire this week.
