Strong winds are sweeping across Wales after the Met Office issued a weather warning on Monday morning.

The yellow warning for wind covers the whole of  Wales, Northern Ireland and England as far north as Cumbria until 10pm on Monday.

Gusts of up to 45mph are expected inland and exposed coastal areas could see winds of up to 55mph with heavy rain showers.

The forecaster has warned that windy conditions are likely to cause delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport as well as a possible short-term loss of power.

The Met Office has advised those looking to travel on Monday to check road conditions if driving or public transport timetables and amending plans if necessary.

Those on the coast should be aware of large waves and to take care if walking near cliffs, the forecaster said.
