Weather and flood warnings in place ahead of deluge in Gloucestershire

Weather alerts have been issued

Comments (4)

Weather warnings have been issued in Gloucestershire ahead of prolonged heavy rain on Monday and Tuesday.

A flood alert has also been placed on the River Wye past Lydbrook in the Forest of Dean.

Any last minute Christmas shopping early next week is likely to get consumers extremely wet, and people travelling to be with friends and family over the festive break are being told to be very cautious.

The Met Office has placed a yellow weather alert - the least severe, but still meaning people need to be on guard - across the entire west and south coasts on Monday and Tuesday.

Showers are expected to start tomorrow, making way for lengthy, heavy deluges on Monday and into Tuesday morning.

Christmas Day looks set to be crisp and clear though.

    A spokesman for AA added: 'Driving fast through standing water is inconsiderate and illegal. 'You could face a hefty fine and between three and nine penalty points if the police believe you were driving without reasonable consideration to other road users.' In 2005 a man from Yeovil in Somerset was fined £150 and given three points after accidentally driving through a puddle at 10mph, soaking the trousers of a workman standing at the side of the road. Last year a woman in Manchester failed her driving test after accidentally splashing a woman standing at a bus stop. She was told it was a legal requirement to stop and provide her details to the pedestrian. Read more: http://tinyurl.com/yf28xjr Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

    Lets hope the police take action against this stupid, inconsiderate driver, after all they do have his registration details now.
