And by midweek, the East Midlands and South Yorkshire are also expecting a deluge, on top of the ground already flooded earlier this month, with a yellow weather warning, and the possibility of flooding, already in place.

Met Office weather forecaster Alex Burkill said on Saturday evening: “Across the next five days we have got warnings for each day.

“On Wednesday it’s covering that area of Yorkshire and Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, that area which saw the severe flooding.

“At the moment, the rainfall is not expected to be particularly heavy for the time of year, but we are expecting it to be significant.

“There are likely to be some impacts.”
