The Met Office says: “Gusts are likely to reach 50 to 60 mph fairly widely, with a risk of 65 to 70 mph across some exposed headlands.

“If you are on the coast, stay safe during stormy weather by being aware of large waves. Even from the shore large breaking waves can sweep you off your feet and out to sea.

“Take care if walking near cliffs – know your route and keep dogs on a lead. In an emergency, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.”
