The Met Office has issued a weather warning for wind across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire today.

From noon until 9pm tonight a period of northerly gales, and locally severe gales along the coast, will develop over eastern parts of Yorkshire by midday, moving south to affect coastal parts of Lincolnshire and then across Norfolk and Suffolk by early evening.

Gusts of 50-60 mph are possible inland and locally 70 mph along the coast.

A spokesman said: "Please be aware of the risk of localised disruption due to these winds, particularly to travel.

2Very strong northerly winds are expected to develop as a deepening area of low pressure moves east into the southern North Sea during today. The strongest winds are expected to affect the coast, but even inland some gusts of 60 mph seem likely."
