There's an  Amber alert for rain for South and West Dorset.

The National Severe weather warning service from the Met Office says its for the whole of the South West Region valid from now till midnight.

The statement says further persistent rain will spread across the area on Saturday, turning heavy at times, especially during the evening. Given high existing levels of saturation, the public should be prepared for local flooding.

The local football programme's been wiped out with waterlogged pitches resulting in games at Dorchester, Weymouth, Bridport and the whole of the Magna Dorset Premier league being called off.
