According to the Met Office, strong winds could cause injuries and danger to life from flying debris.

Some bus and train services could be affected alongside delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport expected- so journeys could take longer than usual.

Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves. There will also be delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges.

There is also a small chance of injuries and danger to life that could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

The Met Office have said: “A spell of strong winds associated with Storm Jocelyn is expected to develop across this region during Tuesday afternoon, peaking overnight into Wednesday morning, before easing across most areas by midday.

"However, winds are likely to remain strong across and just to the east of the Pennines until early Wednesday afternoon.

Peak gusts of 45-55mph are likely inland, perhaps 65mph on some exposed coasts.”
