A Norfolk recycling centre has reopened after high winds force it to shut.

Caister Recycling Centre was closed on Thursday morning due to the windy weather, which has seen gusts of upwards of 50mph hit the county.

In coastal areas such as Yarmouth and Caister winds were expected to get as high as 60mph on Wednesday night.

But @NorfolkRecycles tweeted at around midday to say that the centre had been reopened.

A second weather warning for wind is in place for 12pm on Friday until 6pm on Saturday, with more strong winds expected, particularly in coastal areas.

The Met Office said: “Southwesterly winds will strengthen through Friday. Gales will become widespread later on Friday, persisting well into Saturday whilst becoming more westerly.

“In addition, bands of heavy rain sweeping eastwards on Friday in particular will present an additional hazard.”
