A staggering 187 weather warnings have been issued for England today as Storm Franklin rips through the country. The third storm in less than a week has prompted amber and yellow weather warnings and hundreds of flood alerts issued, trains cancelled and people advised not to travel.

There are currently 187 flood warnings in place and 167 less severe flood alerts in place as of 10.15am.

Most flood alerts are concentrated in the midlands and north of England, but some are also active in the south east and far south west of England.

Flooding has resulted in evacuations in some areas as well as the closure of public transport services.

More than 70 homes in south Manchester have been evacuated and a section of the M62 has been closed due to flooding.

Rotherham Central train station tracks have been almost entirely flooded and will remain closed until at least Tuesday.

People have been warned to stay away from rivers in Yorkshire, with homes evacuated and roads and bridges closed.
