A yellow warning for high winds is in place for much of the north west tonight due to the effects of the Hurricane Ophelia.

Forecasters have warned of flying debris, such as tiles blown from roofs, as well as large waves around coastal districts with beach material being thrown on to coastal roads, sea fronts and properties.

Met weather forecaster Grahame Madge said.

"Parts of England, areas like the North West, are covered by a warning. The impacts will be felt in northern England into Tuesday."
