The Met Office has warned about the dangers of flying debris and travel disruption.

Power cuts and mobile phone coverage interruption could also be caused by the storm.

Dan Suri, Met Office principal operational meteorologist, said: ‘Storm Evert will bring some high winds, particularly along the northern coast of the southwest, but there will be gusty winds more widely in southern areas, which brings the potential for some impacts, especially for those that might be travelling or camping in the weather.’
