Met Office chiefs have today issued a yellow weather warning, with high winds sweeping down from the north-west and hitting the south coast of England.

Brighton was this morning the windiest part of the country, with gusts of up to 55mph battering the Sussex coastal city.

Wind speeds of up to 50mph have battered Merseyside this morning, with the coastal town of Crosby bearing the brunt.

It comes as police in London were last night pictured pulling up a fence which had crashed down into the middle of a road in upmarket Mayfair.

In Whitehawk, Brighton, a tree was blown down, narrowly missing the front of a block of flats. 

Meanwhile, the Met Office is today warning of disruption to travel, damage to trees and large waves in coastal areas as part of a weather warning covering much of Wales and the south of England.
