Flash flooding could hit parts of the Lothians today

The Met Office said that amber and yellow warnings, in place until 3pm today, are in force for Thursday morning, meaning that conditions on the roads will be treacherous for some, with surface water flooding and intense rainfall.

They went on to add that an amber weather warning could lead to "fast flowing or deep floodwater" with a "danger to life". It could also lead to power cuts and communities being cut off by flooded roads.

East Lothian will face the brunt of the amber weather warning this morning and carrying on into the early afternoon.
