The UK Met Office has extended its Amber wind warning to cover most of the UK ahead of Storm Isha.
Two 12-hour amber wind warnings will be in place from 6pm until tomorrow morning.
One stretches across central, eastern and western England and all of Wales, only missing London and parts of the south-east.
The other covers all of Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland.
