"VERY windy weather" has been forecast for Southampton this weekend, as the Met Office issues a yellow weather warning.

The city, as well as most of Hampshire, is covered by the warning from Saturday midnight until 6pm.

It adds that "some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely" adding: "There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close".

A Met Office spokesperson said: “The strongest winds will arrive across northern Scotland during Friday afternoon, before becoming more widespread overnight and into Saturday morning. Winds will tend to slowly ease from the north during the afternoon.

“The location and strength of the very strongest winds remains uncertain. However, gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations, particularly in parts of Scotland and north-east England.”
