The Met Office has issued an Amber Warning for high winds across much of the East Midlands and the whole of Derbyshire.

The warning is in place from 6am tomorrow and is expected to remain until 8pm.

There are warnings that some areas could see gusts in excess of 80MPH, especially around midday.

Gales and high winds can be dangerous to drivers and pedestrians and police have issued the following information for residents:

  • Listen carefully to weather forecasts.
  • If you're planning to travel by car listen to local traffic updates in case roads are blocked by fallen trees or debris.
  • If you're not travelling then stay indoors unless it's absolutely necessary to go outdoors.
  • If you need to check on the wellbeing of friends, relatives or neighbours, do this by telephone.
