A yellow weather warning has been issued for the whole of the North West, with gusts of up to 65mph forecast.

Met Office spokesman John Hammond said: “Weather conditions over the next couple of days or so are showing no acknowledgement for the arrival of the summer month of June.

“Indeed, some very unseasonal weather during Monday and Tuesday for all of North West England means the Met Office has now issued a Yellow Warning of Wind.”
