Weather woes as events hit by stormy weather

Stormy weather is causing disruption to sporting and cultural events in many parts of the UK, including the Olympic torch relay.

A festival to mark the torch's arrival in Blackpool has been moved inside, the Isle of Wight Festival site is waterlogged and England's cricket match against the West Indies was called off.

Forecasters say heavy rain is affecting northern England, Northern Ireland, north Wales and south-west Scotland.

The Environment Agency has issued six flood warnings in Lancashire.
