The Met Office has forecast a further spell of very strong winds, this time blowing from the west.

Later today, gales will spread across much of northern England and parts of the north Midlands.

Gusts of 60 to 70 mph are expected in places, perhaps a little higher over western coasts and high ground.

Heavy rain will accompany the high winds in some areas, with snow affecting some higher level routes.
