CUMBRIA may have faced Storm Ciara and Dennis within the last fortnight - but the Met Office have confirmed that more spells of heavy rain are on the way.

The forecaster says further wet and windy weather are set to arrive later this week.

A spokesman from the Met Office said: "Rain and increasingly strong winds will move in from the west on Wednesday morning spreading across the whole of the UK through the day.

"Rain will be persistent and heavy at times in north western England overnight and a further front will move through on Thursday bringing heavy downpours."

Further spells of rain are forecast on Friday.

Storm Dennis brought wet and windy conditions after what was an unsettled week, with Storm Ciara bringing stormy conditions the weekend before.
