Road, rail, air and ferry services could be affected as well as some bridge closures as the remnants of Storm Ophelia are set to hit the British Isles.

There is a good chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

Forecasters say flying debris is likely, such as tiles blown from roofs, as well as large waves around coastal districts with beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties.
