The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for wind across large parts of the UK including the Isles of Scilly ahead of Storm Eleanor which is expected to move in across the UK later on today. 

The warning is in place from 18:00 Tuesday 2nd January and 18:00 Wednesday 3rd January and a statement on the Met Office's website said: "Storm Eleanor is to bring very strong winds later Tuesday, continuing overnight and on Wednesday.

The warning has been adjusted to bring the northern boundary southwards, and to combine with the warning previously in force for Wednesday. Public transport may be disrupted or canceled and some bridges are likely to be closed.

Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may also occur, while injuries from flying debris are possible.

Combined with a period of high tides, it is likely that some western coastal communities will be affected by large waves and spray, and again there is a chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves, or beach material being thrown on to seafronts and coastal properties."

We'll have more information for you as soon as it's available.
