Storms lash southern Sweden

Parts of southern Sweden have been hit by heavy rain and high winds, as a low pressure system moves in from the south.  

Twenty-seven centimetres of rain fell over the island of Gotland this morning, and there have been reports of waterspouts in Halland, in the south west.

Speaking to Swedish Radio News, a meteorologist at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute said that while the waterspouts were unrelated to the heavy rainfall, they are part of generally unsettled conditions.

Heavy showers have also been reported in southern and central areas. The storms are now moving northwards.
