The Met Office has issued four weather warnings across the UK including two for strong winds in north western Scotland and most of England and Wales.

There is also a warning for snow and ice across central Scotland and the highlands.

Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon said on Tuesday that northern and western Scotland will continue to be hit with high winds of 60mph to 70mph from Storm Brendon.
