The Met Office has issued a weather warning for very strong winds across Suffolk and Essex.

The yellow warning for wind is in place from 9pm on Wednesday until 1pm on Thursday for large parts of the UK including Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

The warnings have cautioned about the possibility of travel dealsy on roads, public transport cancellations and power cuts.

It also states: “Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, along with some damage to buildings.”

The chief forecaster states there is still uncertainty of where the most damaging winds will be but parts of eastern England look most at risk.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey added: “It’s a low pressure system that’s crossing the country overnight on Wednesday night and that’s bringing those stronger winds.

“The warning is talking about isolated, more exposed areas seeing 80mph, but more widely 60-70mph.”
