Heavy rain and lightning are expected to hit Yorkshire this afternoon as the Met Office issued a second warning of thunderstorms across the county.

The worst of the weather is expected mid-afternoon and could continue into the late night. Here is our weather package for the Bank Holiday Weekend via the Met Office, Sky News and the BBC.
