The south west has been warned to brace for disruption as strong winds and large waves have been forecast to batter the region, writes Alex Cutler.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for strong winds between 4am and 6pm on Saturday, November 2, meaning that people should prepare for travel disruption.

Residents have been told there could be a small chance of injuries and danger to life from flying debris and buildings could also be damaged.

Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely and some bus and train services could be affected, with some journeys taking longer.

The Met Office has also warned that periods of power loss and failure of other services is also possible.

Residents in coastal communities are likely to be affected by spray and large waves caused by the high winds.
