Storm Ali to delay travel


Winds of up to 130km/h could put lives at risk and disrupt travel and power supplies across parts of the UK as Storm Ali hits, BBC warns.

An amber, "be prepared", weather warning is in force from 08h00, local time, in Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England, with heavy rain expected.

Belfast City Council is to close all parks, playgrounds, pitches and playing fields because of the storm.

Aer Lingus has warned customers to check before travelling as it expects there to be disruption.

The amber warnings are in place from 08h00 to 17h00 and mean damage to buildings, disruption to road, rail, air and ferry services and possible power cuts should be expected.

Areas affected by the yellow warnings, in place between 06h00 and 22h00, are likely to experience lower speed winds of up to 100km/h but could face similar levels of danger and damage.

Travellers in any of the affected areas are advised to check the status of their flight in advance.
