FORECASTERS say flooding and transport disruption is likely as heavy rain is set to fall across the South East. 

An amber weather warning has been put in place by the Met Office for this afternoon.

It warns homes and businesses are likely to be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

Delays and some cancellations to train and bus services are likely with spray and flooding probably leading to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

Fast flowing floodwater is possible, causing danger to life and power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses likely. 

The warning follows a weekend of incidents in Brighton and Sussex after high winds from Storm Miguel lashed the county.

Today, the forecast shows that in some places as much as a month's worth of rain could fall within hours.

Met Office officials have warned there is a "small chance" that some homes and businesses could be flooded in the region.

But there is more likely to be problems on the roads with spray and difficult conditions which may also affect public transport.
