The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind in Suffolk and Essex, with gusts of up to 50mph expected. 

The weather warning is in place from Tuesday morning and may lead to damage to temporary structures and transport disruption, according to the Met Office.

The Orwell Bridge on the A14 has to close if wind speeds exceed 60mph, since road improvements were made earlier this year, but during gusts of 45-60mph traffic has to move more slowly. 

If winds do hit high speeds, the speed limit will be reduced from 60mph to 40mph.

The Met Office has also warned there will be some heavy showers in Suffolk on Tuesday before it eases in the daytime.
