There is a Met Office yellow warning in place for high winds in the London region today.

The winds are building throughout today peaking between 4 and 6pm with gusts upto 50 mph.

That is strong enough enough to bring down a few tree branches and cause transport problems for high sided vehicles and ferries.

The winds are the result of an unusually deep area of low pressure sitting over Ireland
