Heavy rain has brought flash flooding to a number of homes across parts of mid Wales.

Ystradgynlais and Abercraf in Powys were the worst affected areas while emergency services were also called to pump out properties in Cardigan, Ceredigion.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service received dozens of calls from people whose homes had been flooded.

The flooding was caused by heavy localised downpours.

Dyfed-Powys Police also reported receiving "multiple" calls and urged people to avoid the Ystradgynlais area.

Heavy downpours and thunder hit parts of south Wales during the afternoon after forecasters warned of possible disruption.
