A Met Office yellow weather warning for strong wind covers much of Wales, central and northern England and southern Scotland until 3pm on Saturday.

A tree also came down on a double-decker bus in Poole, Dorset, smashing through its roof and windows.

Meteorologist Alex Burkill warned that the weather could cause further issues on roads.

High winds closed the coastal route between Kilwinning, Ardrossan and Largs, and part of the West Highland line between Craigendoran and Helensburgh.

The Tamar Bridge between Devon and Cornwall is also closed to high-sided and vulnerable vehicles in both directions.

Conditions in the north will be brighter, with some rain and gales possible later on.

"They're going to have very strong winds.We could therefore see some further problems on roads".

Mr Keates added the band of weather will potentially have "some hill snow" as it makes it way out of Northern Ireland and into Wales and the south-east of England to end Sunday.

There were numerous flood warnings in England and Scotland yesterday due to storm Erik which also brought winds of up to 70mph in some parts of the UK.

And the blustery weather looks set to continue into the weekend, with the Met Office extending a yellow warning, admitting the storm turned out to be stronger than originally anticipated.

Storm Erik was named by Irish forecaster Met Eireann on Thursday.
