Last night was horrendously windy and across Cornwall, there have been problems. Locally a van has been hit by a tree on the Torpoint road!

Further very strong winds are expected today in association with storm Doris with gusts of 60-70 mph likely, and 70-80 mph on coasts and hills according to the  MET Office.

Whilst the strongest winds look to be only short-lived, damage to structures, interruptions to power supplies and widespread disruption to travel networks are likely, with a danger of injury from flying debris. Trees are also likely to be damaged or blown over.

Heavy rain is also likely through Thursday as well as some snow over high ground as the system clears eastwards. These may prove additional hazards.

There is still some uncertainty about the track of storm Doris, but increasing confidence that there will be widespread disruption across parts of England and Wales.

The warning has been updated to extend the at-risk area southwards.
