MAJOR flood warnings remain in place for much of Hampshire after residents endured a water-logged weekend.

Flooding misery is set to continue for thousands of people, with more heavy rain set to add to their current problems.

With the Test and Itchen rivers swollen and bursting their banks, the Environment Agency has flood warnings out for parts of Romsey, Winchester and Eastleigh.

And there are also warnings - meaning be prepared for flooding - out for the River Meon between Wickham and Titchfield, the River Test between Stockbridge and Timsbury, Ringwood and Cheriton.

And there are scores of more minor flood alerts out for the rest of the county, including Totton, the River Itchen in north Southampton, the River Hamble and the upper Meon.

They come as the Met Office predicts a deluge of heavy rain to hit the south coast over the next three days.

There is a yellow weather warning for the region for each of the next three days, with up to 20mm of rainfall expected tomorrow alone.

That means it is likely to get worse before it gets better for hundreds of residents caught up in the chaos caused by the floods.

Residents in Budds Lane, Romsey, were evacuated over the weekend as the Test burst its banks, while both Fordingbridge Junior School and St Bede Church of England Primary School are closed today due to flooding.
