RESIDENTS and motorists across North Wales and Chester are being warned of "very strong winds" going into the weekend.

The Met Office has warned that Storm Dennis could bring disruption to many parts of England and Wales on Saturday.

In addition to Chester, counties in North Wales which are expected to be hit include Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham, among others.

A spokesman said: "Very strong winds in association with Storm Dennis are expected on Saturday across many parts of England and Wales.

"Gusts of 50 mph are expected widely inland, with around 60 mph in places.

"Around the coasts, especially in the west and south, gusts of 60-70 mph are likely. This will be accompanied by heavy rain at times."

According to the Met Office, the impact could include flying debris, some damage to buildings, potential longer journey times, public transport cancellations and closure of some roads, as well as a "slight chance" of power cuts.

The yellow weather warning of wind will be in place from 12noon until just before midnight on Saturday.
