The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning about strong winds for Derry.

The warning was issued at 6.27am on Thursday and is valid until 8pm.

Gusts of between 50mph and 60mph are expected with some coastal areas expected to receive gale fore winds as strong as 70mph.

Travel services could be affected including some restrictions on bridges and disruption to ferries. Some damage to trees and buildings is also possible.

“A rapidly deepening area of low pressure, named Storm Doris, is moving quickly east across the UK with strong winds on its southern and western flanks,” said the Met Office’s Chief Forecaster.

“Whilst there is confidence in the very windy spell, there is still some uncertainty about the track of Doris, and therefore the extent of the strongest winds.”
