The Environment Agency has warned of heavy showers and gale force winds this afternoon, but has not issued any new flood warnings.

There is still a flood alert out for the River Thame, but the agency said water levels are falling.

The extreme weather increases the likelihood of sports fixtures at the weekend being affected.
