The Met Office has issued an amber alert as the ‘Weather Bomb’ Storm Doris makes its way round, reaching wind-speeds of up to 80pmh.

The Met office is uncertain about the route of Doris, however they do believe that the majority of England and Wales will be hit.

The worst of the storm is likely to pass by this evening but more weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office for Friday with a forecast of icy conditions and snowfall.

The increasingly high winds have seen trees blown on to roads causing them to close and flights and trains have been cancelled across the country until the storm passes.
