The British Government has issued a travel warning as Hurricane Humberto approaches Florida.

The storm has been forming off the Florida coast with winds topping 85mph.

While it isn't expected to hit the mainland, a warning on the Government's website has urged Brits to be extra cautious.

"If you are in the southeastern US coast you should monitor the progress of any approaching storms on the National Hurricane Center website and follow any instructions issued by the local authorities," reads the warning on gov.uk

Key tourist spots in the south east include Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and there are direct flights from Newcastle International Airport to Orlando.

Despite the storm gathering momentum, Florida is not expected to be hit but a number of after effects will be felt along the state's coastline.

However, potentially dangerous rip currents could be formed after the storm strengthened to a Category one hurricane.

Large swells are also expected to hit the coastline for several days while the rip currents - tight channels of water that can drag swimmers away from the shore at fast speeds - could pose a drowning risk.
