A yellow weather warning for rain has been issued in Northern Ireland.

The warning, which mainly covers counties Antrim and Down, comes into force at 07:00 GMT and lasts until 19:00 GMT on Wednesday.

The Met Office has warned that persistent rain may lead to disruption, and there is possibility of some homes and businesses flooding.
