It comes after the Met Office issued rare red warnings across parts of England because of Storm Eunice.

The wind warnings covered some coastal areas towards the southwest, including south Wales, from early on Friday morning.

A separate red warning comes into force for much of the south and southeast throughout the day.

The Met Office says the wind gusts in the most exposed coastal areas could be in excess of 90mph.
