Storm Dennis: Prepare for worst floods of the year, experts warn

Widespread disruption has been predicted in Scotland this weekend as it prepares to face Storm Dennis.

A Met Office amber warning for heavy rain across central southern Scotland will be in place from noon until 11pm on Saturday.

On Sunday, a yellow warning for wind and rain will remain in place for the rest of southern Scotland, the central belt, the west coast and parts of the north-west from 7am until 8pm on Saturday.

A yellow warning for wind covers the whole of Scotland from noon on Sunday until Monday lunchtime.

Scotland was battered by Storm Ciara from last Sunday, with high winds and heavy rain causing flooding, damage to buildings and transport disruption.
