The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for Northern Ireland, western parts of Scotland, Wales and northern parts of England.

"It's not a major event in the east, we don't expect a major flooding event along the east coast", she told RTÉ Radio One's Today with Sean O'Rourke.

The Met Office said that "leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding". The west coast of Dorset may continue to be affected on Saturday morning. "There could be transport disruption to the air network, rail and roads".
