The storm could bring seven hours of rain with power and transport services at risk

Strong winds and gales could cause disruption to public transport and roads this week, the Met Office has warned.
The yellow weather warning comes after parts of Cambridgeshire saw major flooding as thunderstorms wreaked havoc in towns in the county – including Cottenham and Waterbeach.
No flood warnings have been issued.
However, experts at the UK’s national weather agency have issued a new wind alert for Tuesday and Wednesday (August 26).
Alongside potential delays to road, rail and ferry transport, travel along exposed routes and bridges could be disrupted as high-sided vehicles battle the gales.
Disruption to power and other services is also possible in the stormy weather, according to the Met Office.
