A weather warning has been issued for the Journal and Gazette area for Friday morning.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather alert for a period of very windy weather tracking eastwards across the country.

Gusts of 60-70 mph are likely quite widely, but winds should quickly ease from the west in the morning.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to transport said the Met Office.
