The Met Office is warning of very heavy winds in the county tomorrow as part of Storm Doris.

Gusts of between 60 and 70 miles per hour are expected. It says a ‘small swathe’ of even stronger winds is likely to develop across the Midlands and East Anglia.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning, which means people must be prepared. A Met Office spokesman said: “While the strongest winds look to be only short-lived, damage to structures, interruptions to power supplies and widespread disruption to travel networks are likely, with a danger of injury from flying debris. Trees are also likely to be damaged or blown over.

“Heavy rain is also likely through Thursday as well as some snow over high ground as the system clears eastwards. These may prove additional hazards.”
