A weather warning has been issued as Storm Barney heads for Britain although the strongest winds are next expected in the Anglia region until well into Tuesday evening.

The Met Office yellow weather warning is in force from 4pm until 11.30pm on Tuesday 17 November 2015
The Met Office says: "West to southwesterly gales and locally severe gales are likely to sweep eastwards across the southern half of the UK later on Tuesday.
"Widespread gusts of 50-60 mph are likely, increasing to 60-70 mph across parts of Wales and the Midlands , and possibly reaching 70-80 mph in the most exposed spots such as on some coasts of West Wales."
"A deepening area of low pressure will track east across southern Ireland and then central parts of the UK during Tuesday afternoon and evening, with a swathe of very strong winds developing on the southern flank of the low.
"There is now increased confidence that the worst of the winds will reach West Wales late in the afternoon, sweeping rapidly eastwards across the Midlands during the evening."
