A WEATHER warning for heavy gales has been issued for Tuesday.

Winds of up to 70mph are expected to batter South Yorkshire, with heavy rain also predicted.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "The remains of Hurricane Gonzalo are running across the Atlantic, reaching the UK on Monday night, bringing a period of strong winds to the UK.

"Gusts exceeding 50mph are likely inland, with 60 to 70mph gusts in exposed coastal areas in the west and north.

"The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel and perhaps some damage to trees.

"Difficult driving conditions will result, exacerbated by surface water and spray."
