Gale force westerly winds are likely to hit Cornwall and Devon on Saturday, the Met Office have warned.

The weather is already set to be rainy and the Met Office have released a yellow warning of strong winds on Saturday afternoon and evening, with gusts of 50 to 60 mph.

The warning is in place from 2pm until midnight on Saturday.

A spokesman said that the public should be aware that this could lead to difficult driving conditions and "perhaps some disruption to outdoor activities".

The wild weather is due to an area of low pressure moving eastwards across northern Britain on Saturday. As it does so, a swathe of very strong westerly winds will cross southwest England during the second half of Saturday. In addition, some heavy blustery showers are likely."
