Heavy thundery showers are forecast over the May bank holiday weekend in Northumberland.

It may not come as a surprise given the weather over the past few days but the Met Office has now indicated the changeable pattern is set to continue.

So, if there are any plans for outdoor events such as barbecues, beach visits or a get together with family and friends it’s probably wise to be properly prepared.

Here’s what’s in store:
