High winds predicted by weather bosses

Motorists have been given a yellow warning of high winds by the Met Office.

Strong westerly winds are expected to arrive on Monday evening and night, with gusts of 50-60mph and isolated gusts of 65-70mph in exposed locations.

The wind will become northwesterly by Tuesday morning, and although easing for a time, it will become very gusty through the day, particularly near showers.

Met Office bosses have warned of the risk of localised damage from these winds, plus minor disruption to travel.

The warning will expire on Tuesday evening.
