A weather warning has been issued for the West Country with gales forecast over the next 48 hours.

North Somerset can expect some stormy weather tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday, according to the Met Office.

A yellow weather warning has been issued - a far cry from the gorgeous sunshine which led to record temperatures for the four-day bank holiday Easter weekend.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely, with bus and train services affected.

“Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely and there may be some short-term loss of power and other services is possible due to fallen branches.

The weather warning will come into effect at 9pm tomorrow evening and is due to end at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
