The East of England has been warned to expect gusty weather on Thursday.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for a spell of strong winds, lasting between 6am and 1pm.

It said some delays to road, rail and air transport were likely, with bus and train journeys possibly taking longer than normal and likely delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed roads and bridges.

Some short term loss of power was also possible.

The Met Office said strong winds were expected throughout the day, with a “short period of particularly gusty conditions” moving southeastwards across the country by late morning.

Gusts of up to 65mph are expected briefly in some places. Winds of 40-45mph are likely to be more widespread and have already been recorded on parts of the north Norfolk coast.

The wind is expected to ease a little in the afternoon but conditions will remain blustery.
