Storm warning prompts sandbag filling by valleys council

People have been warned to be prepared for what the Met Office calls a "significant storm" set to batter Wales on Sunday.

Met Office forecasts say hurricane force winds of 60 to 80mph could hit southern parts of the UK sweeping north and east overnight.

Ferry services have been cancelled and councils have been filling sandbags and clearing gullies.

Nigel Wheeler is the service director for street care with Rhondda Cynon Taf council, whose workers have been preparing for the worst.
