The UK is set to be hit by up to 80mph winds this weekend which are likely to cause widespread disruption to travellers.

A yellow warning has been issued for Salisbury and most of the UK on Saturday between midnight and 6pm and there is a chance of damage to buildings, such as tiles being blown from roofs.

The current forecasts suggests winds will reach a maximum of 40mph in Salisbury at midday on Saturday, November 23.

The Met Office said some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely on Saturday.

The Met Office said gusts are likely to reach 50mph to 60mph widely, but could reach 70mph to 80mph in coastal areas.

Bridges and roads could also close and the Met Office said there is a slight chance power cuts may occur, affecting services such as mobile phone coverage.

Only a small part of south-east England avoided a yellow weather warning.
