Britain's bank holiday weekend gets noticeably chillier after heavy downpours threaten to turn it into a washout.

Temperatures across the country will struggle to make it into double figures on Sunday, as widespread showers that lashed the country overnight gradually clear away.

Showers are predicted for Wales, the Midlands and south-east England but will gradually clear away.

Bank Holiday Monday are likely to see more sunny spells, but the cold winds will see similar temperatures to Sunday.

People also face public transport disruption across the country, with widespread engineering work causing delays and bus replacement services on several major rail routes including the East Coast line between London and Leeds.

There is also disruption on routes operated by South West Trains, Southern and East Midland Trains.

On the London Underground, two lines - Waterloo & City and Jubilee - are totally closed this weekend while seven others are partially shut.
