Heavy rain overnight has caused flooding on a number of roads in the area and Blackpool Transport has had to divert some of its services.

Due to severe flooding at Cleveleys Park, the service 3 is diverting from the terminus using North Drive. It then will resume its normal route from Cumberland Avenue junction with North Drive, said the operator.

Motorists are being asked to avoid some streets to prevent homes being flooded by wakes caused by cars driving past.

And there’s ‘further wet and windy weather’ to come this week, warns the Met Office.

A band of rain sweeping in from the west will see gales batter the coast from Tuesday, while thunder and lightning is likely later in the week

In the latest five-day Met Office forecast for the North West, meteorologist Martin Bowles said: "Showers are likely on each of the outlook days, heaviest on Thursday. Warm sunny spells between the showers will raise temperatures to around average for the time of year."
