Storm Eunice: The horrifying moment a storm chaser faced down Eunice in Old Port...

The Met Office says: ‘Further strong winds are expected in some southern areas of the UK, which could hamper recovery efforts from storm Eunice.

‘There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close.

‘There is a small chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, rail, air and ferry services are affected.

‘Infrastructure recovery works resulting from storm Eunice could also be hampered, i.e. power cuts may be prolonged.’

The Met Office adds: ‘A short-lived area of strong winds looks likely to track quickly eastwards across southern parts of England and Wales on Saturday, accompanied by a spell of heavy rain.

‘The strongest winds are expected through the Bristol Channel and along the south coast of England with gusts of 60 mph likely here, and 40 to 50 mph inland.

‘The winds themselves could cause minor disruption; but given the expected impact from Storm Eunice on Friday, these conditions on Saturday may hamper any clear-up operations.’
