Sussex has issued its fifth weather warning in just a week as the Met Office forecast more rain for the region.
A county-wide yellow weather warning for rain has been issued, effective from 11pm tonight and continuing until 10am tomorrow.
Heavy rain showers are likely to cause further flooding in some locations, with road spray expected to increase travel times for motorists and some bus and train services expected to be delayed.
A Met Office spokeswoman said: “After Sunday’s heavy rain, further heavy showers are likely overnight and into Monday morning, bringing a further 15 to 25mm of rain in places.”
The latest weather warning comes after a week of heavy rain and winds across Sussex which led to widespread flooding and further damage to Brighton’s West Pier in some parts of the county.
