Warning as Storm Franklin hits UK

The Met Office has issued a warning for ‘very strong winds’ across most of the UK as Storm Franklin arrives.

The update comes in the wake of Storms Dudley and Eunice.

A number of flood alerts and train cancellations are now in place, with many advised against travelling.

A yellow warning for wind also covers most of the UK, with gusts forecast to be up to 65-75mph in coastal areas and 50-60mph further inland.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “Following the significant impacts of Storm Eunice on Friday, Storm Franklin will bring further high winds for many late on Sunday and into Monday, although not on the same scale as Eunice.

“Storm Franklin will clear into the North Sea on Monday morning, although high winds will continue to be felt for most through Monday.”

People are advised to check with their local authorities for safety advice.
