Forecasters are warning of heavy showers, surface flooding and travel disruption across the South East.

The festival got off to a sunny start with sets from Stereophonics, Busted and Status Quo, but the ground could be spoilt for The Who's set tonight.

The yellow warning covers most of Hampshire and the island, although experts say parts of the region could escape the worst or even stay dry.

The Met Office's chief forecaster said: "A moist, unstable air mass across most of England and Wales will again lead to the development of some heavy showers and localised thunderstorms. 15-25 mm of rain could fall locally within an hour, with 30 to 40 mm possible within 3 or 4 hours. These amounts could generate some surface water flooding, especially if they affect urban areas."

The warning is active until 8pm, two hours before The Who take the stage.
