The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Herefordshire this weekend as Storm Arwen hits the UK.

The storm is set to track slowly southwards across the North Sea on Friday, bringing severe gales to the northeast, but potentially disruptive winds for much of the UK.

The warning is in place in Herefordshire from midnight to 6pm on November 27, with high winds possibly causing some travel disruption and damage.

Winds in Herefordshire are predicted to reach as high as 33mph by midday.

The Met Office warns that injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, and that damage to trees, temporary structures and buildings could happen.

Road, rail, air, and ferry services may also be affected, with longer train journeys and cancellations possible.

Some roads and bridges may close. Power cuts may also occur, with the potential to affect other services such as mobile phone coverage.

Met Office Principal Meteorologist Dan Suri said Storm Arwen will widely bring gusts of up to 65mph in coastal areas, though in the north-east, winds of 75mph were possible in exposed locations.

An amber warning is also in place across much of northern Scotland.
