Commuters on their way to work or school face a grim journey this morning as the remains of Hurricane Gonzalo sweep into Wales.

The North is expected to be worst hit with travel disruption possible.

In Holyhead there's a Force 9 gale blowing. That means winds over 50 miles an hour. Capel Curig in Snowdonia has hit 65.

There's a yellow warning of wind across much of Wales. The Met Office is predicting storm force winds on exposed coasts.

There are reports of trees being blown down in Pembrokeshire, Powys and on Anglesey.

One lane has been closed in both directions on the Severn Bridge and there's a speed limit on the Britannia Bridge.

Irish Ferries has cancelled some services between Holyhead and Dublin.

Meanwhile flooding means there are no trains running between Blaenau Ffestiniog and North Llanrwst.
