The Met Office has issued an early warning for heavy rain and strong winds on Monday (23rd December).

Forecasters warn the torrential downpours could cause localised flooding and damaging gusts could bring down trees. They added that travel disruption is also likely.

The storm is latest in a series that have battered the Gainsborough area in recent weeks.

Two weeks ago a man was killed by a falling tree in King’s Park in nearby Retford.
