The South Wales coast is being battered by high winds and storms - with the Met Office warning it “will get worse before it gets better”.
As newly named Storm Evert gathers pace, winds of up to 75mph are expected to lash the South Wales and South West England - with coastal gales and rain set to cause disruption.
A yellow weather warning is place for the South Wales coastline, from St Davids to Cardiff and Newport, until midday - but an 'amber alert' is in place for Cornwall until 7am.
The storm will move across parts of the UK, giving a “wet and windy start” to Friday for the southern and central regions, the Met Office said.
Late last night, Steven Keates, a meteorologist from the Met Office, told PA: “The wind will get worse before it gets better.
“There is the potential for 60mph in coastal areas of west Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
“There is the chance of seeing something a little stronger than that from midnight to 3am, where as per the amber warning, there is the chance of seeing gusts of up to 75mph in one or two very exposed coastal spots, mainly in Cornwall.”
An amber weather warning has been issued for south-west England, with the Met Office saying Storm Evert will bring strong winds to the region, potentially causing damage to infrastructure and leading to travel disruption.
This could include damage to buildings, fallen trees and a “good chance” that power cuts could occur, which could affect other services such as mobile phone coverage.
The warning, which is currently in place until Friday morning, also says large waves, flying debris and beach material being thrown on to roads and seafronts could lead to injuries or “danger to life”.
