Weather warnings have been issued by forecasters as the remnants of Hurricane Bertha continue to move across the country. After Wales and southern England were left drenched on Sunday, northern parts braced themselves for the unpleasant conditions today.

By early this morning the town of Lossiemouth, in Moray, Scotland, had recorded almost a average month's rainfall in just 12 hours, while Aberdeenshire saw gusts of 50mph. A First World War flypast over the white cliffs of Dover involving three bi-planes escorted by modern-day Tornado GR4s to commemorate those who flew and fought in the Great War has been cancelled due to unstable winds across the Channel.

Large parts of the country have been warned to prepare for more severe weather today as former Hurricane Bertha continues its path across the country. The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for rain in northern and eastern Scotland, as well as Northumberland. There's also more serious amber warnings in place in the Highland and Grampian regions.
