The Met Office has issued a weather warning for ‘very strong winds’ across Norfolk and Waveney.

The yellow warning is in place from 9pm on Wednesday until 1pm on Thursday for most parts of the country including Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire and warns of road, rail and ferry services being affected.

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.”

There will be the potential for gusts of 60 to 70mph and a small chance of winds reaching 80mph in some parts of the country.

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.”
