WARNINGS have been issued across Yorkshire as weather forecasters predict up to a month's worth of rain could fall in just 24 hours. The Environment Agency says those in the North should be prepared for flooding as two bands of very heavy rain forecast. Heavy rain yesterday already caused some local roads to flood and Dodworth St John's Primary issued a thank-you statement after locals rushed to help when they put an emergency call out. A spokesman said: "On behalf of the staff and everyone involved with Dodworth St Johns can I please thank the parents, pupils, staff, governors, grandparents and friends of the school who, after a text requesting help, turned up on mass to help clear up the after effects of the torrential rainfall. "Many hands did indeed make light work, and because of the support from these people school can open as normal tomorrow. It was a truly humbling experience and one that makes us all proud to be involved with the school." UPDATES: Accident on Broadway just below school.
