THE Exeter-based Met Office has extended its yellow weather warning for 'strong winds' and strong coastal waves.

The warning is in place from 4pm on Monday (April 8) until 6am tomorrow (Tuesday) and covers West Somerset, including Minehead and Exmoor.

The Met Office says there is a small chance that injuries or danger to life could result from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties, or from flying debris elsewhere.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "There is a small chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

"There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs

"Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are possible and a small chance that some roads and bridges could close."
