A weather warning has been issued for the west coast of Scotland as torrential rain is set to hit Largs and the surrounding area.

The ‘danger to life’ warning has been issued by the Met Office and covers most of the central belt, including North Ayrshire.

The warning is from 3am on Monday morning and will remain in place until around 9am the following day.

Large waves are expected in coastal areas and travel disruption may be possible on trains, with passengers urged to check their timetable before travelling.

The Met Office said: "Spells of rain, heavy at times, commencing Sunday night will persist through most of Monday before clearing on Tuesday morning.

"50 to 75 millimetres of rain is expected over hills and mountains. Over a few mountains, most likely in Argyll, as much as 75-100 millimetres of rain may fall."

Train operator ScotRail said: "We're expecting some heavy rainfall, particularly in the southwest of the country overnight tonight.

"This will be followed by persistent and sometimes heavy rain throughout Monday. If you need to use the train, please check your journey before travelling."
