A yellow warning has been issued by the Met Office as Greater Manchester looks set for another difficult day of weather. 

Oldham, Rochdale and Bury are the regions hit worst, with heavy rain and high winds sweeping through into Manchester city centre.

There have already been eight train cancellations on Northern lines, with a chance of further public transport disruption throughout Monday.

Roads remain hazardous with impaired visibility and patches of standing water, and drivers are being urged to take extreme caution.

The worst of the wind and rain is predicted to pass by late afternoon, and whilst there are no further warnings in place for Tuesday, we're still in for some testing conditions.

Steady rain and strong breezes will be in force tomorrow and throughout the rest of the week.
