The Met Office has released a yellow weather warning as strong winds are expected to hit the North on Sunday.

The winds are expected to lead to disruption throughout the day from midnight until 4pm.

The Met Office are predicting the wind could cause some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs and a chance of longer journey times or cancellations as travel services could be affected

There is also a slight chance that power cuts may occur which have the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

A Met Office spokesperson said: “Gusts of 50-60 mph are most likely over and to the east of high ground, particularly the Pennines which may lead to some travel disruption.

“With trees in full leaf, fallen branches and damaged trees may cause some localised travel and power disruption.”
