Blustery winds with gusts of up to 50mph are expected in Suffolk this weekend as Storm Jorge sweeps in.

There are no weather warnings currently in place for the east of England - but Weatherquest forecasters are predicting wind speeds of around 45mph will be felt across parts of the county on Saturday morning.

At the moment, it looks as though East Anglia will escape the worst of Storm Jorge, after taking a battering during Storm Ciara and Dennis earlier in the month.
