Police are warning lorry and van drivers not to ignore advice, to avoid certain roads as Storm Henry brings high winds to the region.

Road and rail services are expected to be disrupted throughout the day as Storm Henry strengthens.

Two lorries were overturned on the Cumbria/County Durham border yesterday due to severe winds.

Rail networks across the region are enforcing a 50mph speed limit throughout the day so journeys could be delayed.
