More flood warnings for Dorset after stormy night
Flood warnings have been put in place across Dorset following more heavy rain.
More persistent rain is due to fall this morning before clearing later on this afternoon.
A landslide at Monmouth Beach near Lyme Regis yesterday closed off an access road, with Dorset Police believing another landslip could follow.
Flood warnings issued by the Environment Agency are in place on The River Char at Dolphins Caravan Park, The River Wey between Upwey and Weymouth, The South Winterborne Valley and The River Frome from Dorchester to Wareham.

Kate Marks, Environment Agency Flood Risk Manager said: "We strongly urge people to sign up to flood warnings, keep a close eye on local weather forecasts and be prepared for the possibility of further flooding.
"We also ask that people stay safe, by staying away from swollen rivers and not attempting to drive through floodwater.
"The Environment Agency already has teams out on the ground checking on flood defences and clearing any blockages in order to reduce the risk of flooding as much as possible."
The C7 West Stafford Bypass near Dorchester is closed in both directions due to flooding this morning.
Standing water is causing problems for drivers on several other roads across Dorset.
