The Met Office issued an amber warning for rain on Tuesday for Yorkshire and the Humber, the North West, East Midlands and eastern England as experts predict the storm will bring widespread flooding, gales and snow to the UK this week according to BBC Weather.

Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones announced a major incident for South Yorkshire on Monday night, while a less severe yellow rain alert is in place for Northern Ireland, Wales, southern Scotland and other parts of England

In the amber warning area, the Met Office warned there was a “danger to life” due to fast-flowing or deep floodwater, and told some communities they could be “cut off” by flooded roads.

It also predicted delays and cancellations to public transport, with the amber warning in place until 12:00 GMT on Thursday. Highways England advised drivers to take extra care on motorways and major A roads, while the RAC breakdown service said motorists should only drive if absolutely necessary.
