Strong winds will hit Dorset this weekend as Storm Arwen blows in.

Gusts could reach 65mph in coastal areas on Saturday.

The Met Office has issued a warning from midnight until 6pm.

A spokesperson has warned of injuries and danger to life from flying debris.

There could also be some damage to trees, temporary structures and buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs.

Transport may also be affected leading to some roads being closed.

They are also warning of injuries and danger to life from large waves and beach material being thrown onto seafronts and roads.

The Met Office added: "Storm Arwen will bring high winds to most areas during Saturday.

"Gusts will widely reach 55 to 65 mph in many coastal areas with the highest gusts in coastal parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, southwest England and northeast England where gusts in excess of 65 mph are expected in some areas.

"Winds will start to slowly ease over Scotland and then northern England during the course of the day."

Met Office Principal Meteorologist Dan Suri said, “Storm Arwen is associated with a deep low pressure system that will impact the northeast in particular from Friday, but will also bring wider impacts to the UK with high winds, rain and some snow probable over the high ground. 

“Storm Arwen’s impacts are mainly associated with high winds as the storm sinks southwards and will widely bring gusts of up to 65mph in coastal areas, although slightly stronger in the northeast, with in excess of 75mph possible in exposed locations.”
