The Ashby area is set for another pounding from the weather this weekend - less than a week after Storm Ciara hit.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for strong winds during Saturday and Sunday when Storm Dennis is due.

But while Dennis is not as expected to be as devastating as Ciara was, conditions are likely to be treacherous.

The Met Office says: "Thursday and Friday will see spells of heavy rain, strong winds and further snow for parts of the UK with several severe weather warnings in force, before Storm Dennis brings further very wet and windy weather this weekend.

"Dennis will bring heavy rain and widespread strong winds to many parts of the UK on Saturday and Sunday, though the impacts are not expected to be as extreme as Storm Ciara last weekend.

"The system will develop in the North Atlantic before tracking eastwards towards the UK and Ireland over the coming days, National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for many parts of the UK this weekend."

Paul Gundersen, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said: "Another spell of very wet and windy weather is expected for Saturday. Although Storm Dennis is currently not expected to be as severe as Ciara, disruption is still likely. Our confidence in the forecast means we have been able to issue severe weather warnings well in advance, giving people time to prepare for potential impacts of the storm.

"With further warnings possible over the next few days people should keep up to date with the Met Office forecast using our website, app or by following us on social media."
