The Met Office has warned of high winds and possible coastal flooding.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for gale force winds and possible coastal flooding later this week.

Strong westerly winds, gusting up to 70 mph, are forecast for parts of the UK on Thursday - including Lincolnshire.

And they have warned the east coast will be at risk from possible coastal flooding caused by the high winds.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “Westerly gales are expected to spread southwards across northern and some central parts of the UK on Thursday, with gusts of 60 to 70 mph possible.

“The winds will veer northerly or northwesterly and ease a little later in the day, with the stronger winds becoming confined to the far northeast of the UK by early Friday.

“The public should be aware of possible disruption to travel, particularly through the central belt of Scotland and over higher routes of northern England on Thursday.

“Large waves, high tides and surge may also cause some coastal flooding along the east coast of England.”
