The Environment Agency warned southern, south western England, south east Wales, the Midlands and the north east of England to be prepared for flooding over the weekend.
A total of 82 flood warnings are in place across all areas of England and Wales with the most - 22 - in both the Midlands and south west England regions.
Successive bands of heavy rain are moving across England and Wales, and with the ground already saturated, this is likely to lead to further property flooding from rivers and surface water as well as disruption to road and rail networks, warned the Agency. This heavy rain is expected to ease on today, before returning again over the weekend.
The Environment Agency evacuated the village of Wallington in Hampshire yesterday after cracking was discovered on the flood wall. Engineers are at the scene reinforcing the wall with sandbags.
