South Wales has been hit by storm force gusts.

There's a warning of travel disruption and possible loss of power as south Wales is battered by strong winds.

A yellow weather warning is in place until 0900.

Gusts of up to 70 miles per hour have been hitting the coast.

Some properties in Haverfordwest lost power on Sunday night.

Western Power say there are still some problems on Gower and parts of Llanelli this morning.

The Met Office says delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely with bus and train services likely to be affected.

It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves and some damage to temporary structures is possible.

The Met Office has warned of further disruption for later this week with the chance of snow and wintry showers.
