he UK’s second storm in a week has prompted rare danger-to-life warnings, with people being told to stay indoors as winds are expected to reach 90mph.

A rare red weather warning – the highest alert, meaning a high impact is very likely – will come into place from 7am on Friday due to the combination of high tides, strong winds and storm surge because of Storm Eunice, the Met Office said.

There is a risk of “flying debris resulting in danger to life” and “damage to buildings and homes, with roofs blown off and power lines brought down” along the coastline of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset as well as the south coast of Wales.

People have been warned to “tie down” objects in their gardens and be wary of fierce winds which could cause trees to topple over and tiles to fly off buildings.

A number of attractions including the London Eye, Legoland and Warwick Castle are temporarily closing.

A number of bridges are also likely to close, with the Dartford Crossing expected to shut from 5am.

It comes after Storm Dudley caused travel disruption and power cuts to parts of the UK on Wednesday.

Met Office forecaster Annie Shuttleworth told the PA news agency: “The whole of the country will be affected by the extremely strong and damaging winds, which will cause significant disruption.

“People will see significant delays to travel and power cuts, so you should avoid travelling if you can and stay at home when winds reach the highest speeds.

“In areas covered by the red warning, especially coastal regions, there is likely to be overtopping of the sea, flooding to roads and homes, trees being overturned, tiles coming off buildings and power lines being toppled over.

“I’d advise people to tie down objects in their gardens, check for cancelled flights – they may not be able to land – and think about travelling by train or roads due to traffic or delays or because bridges may be closed.
