A weather warning for heavy shows and potential thunder has been issued by the Met Office.

The heavy rain is expected to hit mainly north Dorset on Friday, with the warning being in place from 11am until 8pm.

The yellow warning reads: "Heavy showers, which will most likely become thundery in places, are expected to develop quite widely across parts of England and Wales later Friday morning and through the afternoon.

"Some of the showers are likely to become focussed into slow-moving bands, particularly over southwest England, with some locations receiving around 20mm in an hour.

"As is the nature of showers however, many places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day."
