Though predicted to be less severe than its predecessor, Dennis is likely to bring winds of beyond 60MPH and a yellow wind warning has been issued for much of England and Wales for Saturday, coming into place at midday.

The powerful winds are likely to cause cancellations to rail, air and ferry service, as well as the closure of some roads and bridges.

Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the Met Office said: "Our confidence in the forecast means we have been able to issue severe weather warnings well in advance, giving people time to prepare for potential impacts of the storm."

The world leading weather forecaster is also once again warning of a 'danger to life' from flying debris.
