Suffolk is braced for further strong winds as the county is set to be battered in the early afternoon of Tuesday. 

Lots of the UK has been issued weather warnings for snow and ice as a cold front covers the country on Tuesday.

While Suffolk is set to avoid the more extreme weather, winds of 43mph have been forecast by BBC Weather for the county, with Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham and Ipswich set for some of the strongest wind gusts between 12pm and 5pm.

This follows the news that cold weather is expected in the region on Wednesday.

Strong winds are being experienced by most of the country and this is blowing colder air further south after a mild few days.
