Storm Doris Hits Kent
Storm Doris has been causing travel problems across Kent with gusts up to 70mph hour predicted in some parts of the county.
The QEII Bridge at the Dartford Crossing was closed at 10am for safety due to high winds. Highways England says it is also monitoring weather conditions around the Sheppey Crossing which may also need to be closed if things worsen.
Elsewhere Southeastern and Southern Trains both have 50mph speed restrictions on services across the network as a precaution.
And a tree which has fallen onto the line at Broadstairs is also suspending services between Margate and Ramsgate.
Services are at a stand still on Southeastern London bound at Lenham due to fallen tree on the line.
Ferry services from Dover are also being delayed due to choppy conditions.
The A249 Sheppey Crossing is closed both ways due to strong winds between Old Ferry Road (Lower Halstow Turn Off) and B2231 Lower Road / Sheppey Way (Leysdown Turn Off).
The MET office has a yellow weather warning in place for strong winds in place until 8pm this evening (Thursday).
It says gusts of 50-60 mph are expected widely across the warning area, with the risk of 70 mph on coasts and hills. A small swathe of even stronger winds is likely to develop - most likely across parts of northern England, Wales, the Midlands and later East Anglia. Here a short period of gusts of 70 to 80 mph is likely - please refer to the separate Amber warning.
Senior meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said the storm will bring "very strong winds and gales'', and that the centre of Doris will ``track out to the North Sea at around lunchtime''.
He added: "The whole system will still be over the UK, right through the afternoon. The winds then will start to ease from the west through this evening.''
