Flooding has hit Wales for the second time in days, with the collapse of one road, another closed by a mudslide, and the evacuation of houses.

South Wales Police urged drivers to stay home if possible amid crashes, landslips and cars trapped by water.

Residents were evacuated from their homes in Maesteg when a road gave way, and in Port Talbot after the mudslide.

Forecasters predicted more rain on Sunday, with the possibility of severe gales in south Wales.
