Forecasters say that west or southerwesterly gales are likely to affect many parts of the country, including East Anglia.

Issuing what is known as a “yellow warning” of wind between 12.05am and 9pm tomorrow, the Met Office warned that there could be some damage to trees and that “disruption to travel and outdoor activities could occur”.

The gales, which could reach 50mph, are also likely to be accompanied by some heavy rain and the public has been advised to take extra care.
