The Met Office has issued a new weather warning for the Norfolk coast as Storm Babet is set to hit the county. 

Norfolk was previously issued with a yellow weather alert for rain between Thursday and Saturday but this has now been removed. 

However, a yellow weather warning for wind is now in place along the Norfolk coastline following updates to the forecast.

Storm Babet will bring a period of strong winds to these areas from 12pm on Friday to 12pm on Saturday.

People have been warned to expect coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities to be affected by spray and large waves. 

Public transport journeys may also be impacted by the storm. 

Grahame Madge, a Met Office spokesman, said:  "A notable feature for many eastern locations will be the direction of the wind, which will be coming from the east.

"This is an unusual direction for strong wind at this time of year and this may bring associated unusual impacts.

"Coastal residents and visitors are being advised to take extra caution."
