Four schools in Suffolk have announced they will be closed on Friday due to Storm Eunice.

Seckford Education Trust has confirmed its schools in SET Saxmundham School, SET Ixworth School and SET Beccles will not open due to the weather. Thomas Wolsey Ormiston Academy in Ipswich will also remain closed and move entirely to remote learning.

Storm Eunice is set to bring winds of up to 90mph in parts of Suffolk, with the Met Office issuing an amber weather warning - meaning the conditions present a danger to life.
