Severe gales affect parts of Yorkshire
It's been a wild day across Yorkshire, with a fierce westerly wind causing disruption at Leeds Bradford airport where gusts have been exceeding 60mph.
The highest recorded wind speed so far has been 67 mph at Fylingdales on the North York moors.
The highest wind speeds could though be affecting areas where the Met Office have no observations. The Aire valley from Skipton through to Leeds is prone to funnelling in westerly gales, and gusts here are likely to have been reaching up to 70 mph in the last few hours.
In Rodley a roof has been blown off a factory, and in Leeds an overturned lorry has caused disruption in the city centre.
The picture below shows a tree that has been brought down by the strong winds in the Aire valley on the Leeds Liverpool canal at Saltaire this lunchtime.
Wind speeds will remain high for the rest of the afternoon and this evening, but slowly moderate overnight.
