Flood alerts have been issued by the Environment Agency in Dorset after a night of heavy rain.

The Environment agency are keeping an eye on The River Wey, The River Char and groundwater flooding in West Dorset - along with other minor rivers and streams.

The River Brit, The River Asker and The Rover Jordan are also included on the list.

This morning, the A354 Weymouth Relief Road was partially flooded around Upwey.

Persistent rain is expected to clear later today, but heavy and thundery showers could return this afternoon.
