The rare high alert, issued for the first time in three years, warns of a “danger to life” and rail passengers are being advised to not travel plans where possible as winds batter parts of the country tonight and tomorrow. The Met Office said the exceptionally strong winds will affect “eastern coastal districts of Scotland from later this afternoon moving south into south-east Scotland and north-east England this evening.” Elsewhere there is an amber warning with winds of 75mph. The RNLI has warned people should be extremely careful if visiting the shoreline, especially along exposed cliffs, seafronts and piers.
