The patch has been included by the Met Office in a series of regional yellow alerts - the lowest level - from today (Wednesday) until Saturday.

The warning for strong winds is in place from 2pm on Wednesday, December 18, until 3am on Thursday, December 19.

Updates from the Met Office suggest that the weather shows no signs of abating any time soon.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Strong south-easterly winds are expected to develop during Wednesday afternoon".

Today (Wednesday) we'll see a spell of some very strong winds across western parts of the United Kingdom, with gusts of up to 70mph around some coastal locations.
