There Met Office has issued a warning for potential for gales, accompanied by heavy rain, to spread across Notts during the early hours of Friday, before easing during the morning.

Gusts may reach 50 to 60 mph inland and perhaps around 70 mph in some exposed coastal districts. This is an update of the warning issued on Tuesday, somewhat reducing the northward limit of the impacts due to the gales.

The public should be aware of the risk of damage to trees, disruption to travel and possibly to power supplies.
