The windy weather is causing travel problems.

There are speed limits on the the Britannia and Cleddau Bridges. The latter is closed to high sided vehicles.

One lane is closed in both directions on the Severn Bridge and there's a speed limit of 40mph.

Meanwhile a tree blocked the main road between North and South Wales, the A470, at Ganllwyd near Dolgellau in Gwynedd but the road's now been reopened.

Elsewhere the A484 is blocked because of a fallen tree between Adam Street and the B4332 at Llechryd in Ceredigion.
