THE MET Office has issued a two-day amber weather warning for parts of Bradford.

It covers much of the south and south-east of the city and its suburbs.

This includes areas such as Queensbury, Low Moor, Wyke, Cleckheaton and the M606.

It is set to last between 7am today and 6am on Saturday morning.

The rest of Bradford, and neighbouring Leeds, are covered by a slightly less severe, but still problematic, yellow warning.

Both warnings share similar potential issues, arising from heavy rainfall, but they are more likely to occur in amber areas.

The MET Office warns that fast flowing or deep floodwater is likely, causing danger to life.

There is also a good chance that some communities will be cut off by flooded roads, with power cuts and the loss of other services to homes and businesses likely.

Some buildings could also be damaged.

If you need to get somewhere in the alert areas, be aware.

Spray and flooding will probably lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

Those using public transport may also be impacted with delays and cancellations to train and bus services expected.

The yellow warning lasts from 6am today until the same time on Saturday.

This continues a wet autumn for Bradford. 

In early October the MET Office issued three "severe" weather warnings in just three weeks.
