A late summer day on the beach will have to be put on hold today as heavy rain is set to roll in from the southwest today.

The Met Office are warning the public that there may be some impacts to holiday traffic and outdoor activities.

The rain is due to a complex area of low pressure which will bring "an unpleasant day's weather to much of England and Wales", including Cornwall.

Rainfall amounts are likely to exceed 15 mm quite widely, while a few places could see more than 30 mm. There will be a lot of surface water and spray on roads, and winds will be locally strong and gusty.
