Strong winds and travel disruption from Storm Ciara to remain across Kent until 7pm

Strong winds from Storm Ciara are expected to remain across the county today until 7pm.

Kent was battered by the weather yesterday, which forced the closures of the QEII Bridge and the Sheppey Crossing as well as the Port of Dover.

There were also warnings from experts for people, particularly on the coast, not to get too close, as they could be putting their lives at risk.

This morning, disruption still remains as the A21 Tonbridge Bypass has shut due to flooding, while train operator Southeastern has warned passengers to expect some problems on lines in the north of the county.

The Met Office has issued a yellow wind warning for today, with very strong gusts expected to move across the south from 10am to 7pm.

As a result, people are being warned to expect some delays to road, rail and ferry transport, delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges which sea fronts and coastal communities may again be affected by spray and large waves.
