The UK has been issued serious weather warnings as forecasters predict rain, wind, snow and ice in the coming days.

Storm Bella has already been causing chaos in the UK with flooding affecting large areas of England – with more wind and rain on the way.

An amber alert has been issued for severe winds along the south, south west, and welsh coasts which is due to be in place until Monday.

The Met Office warns roads and bridges are likely to be closed as a consequence – while damage to buildings is also predicted thanks to the predicted gale force winds.

They add: “Flying debris is likely and could lead to Injuries or danger to life.”

While beaches pose additional threats, warning: “Injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties.”

Power cuts are also anticipated due to the winds – which could also impact mobile phone services.

Meanwhile, yellow alerts for rain have been issued across the entire UK, with hotspots in the west of Northern Ireland, the west of Scotland, the whole of Wales and most of England.
