12:45pm - The Met Office has downgraded a yellow weather warning for severe gales in Lincolnshire tomorrow (Monday).

A yellow warning had originally been put in force for much of the UK, amid fears of wind speeds gusting up to 70-90mph in some places.

But shortly after midday today the Met Office revised its warnings.

The worst of the storms are expected to batter the south-west and north-west of England and parts of western Scotland.

In those locations, yellow and amber warnings are now in effect.

But in other parts of England - including Lincolnshire - the earlier yellow warning has been dropped.

It is unclear how this will affect East Midlands Trains’ announcement today that it would be operating a reduced seervice on many of its routes in response to the original warning.

Trains in and out of Skegness had expected to operate a normal timetable under the ‘reduced’ service, but with added speed restrictions along the length of the route.

Many other routes were set for reduced operations.
