The Met Office has issued an Amber weather warning for the North West as Storm Helene approaches the UK.
The office has warned of strong winds in excess of 70mph which it says could cause some short-term loss of power as well as delays to bus and train services. ‘Injuries and danger to life’ from flying debris are also a possibility, the Met Office has warned.
Storm Helene is due to hit parts of the North West from Monday, with the warning issued from 6pm tomorrow (September 17) until 12pm on Tuesday (September 18).
