Newcastle residents can be relieved to know there is only one weather warning in place at the time of writing. This is, however, currently in place over two days.

The remaining warning covers Northern England, all of Scotland and Northern Ireland and will be in place between 4pm on Tuesday, January 23 and 12 noon on Wednesday, January 24.

As part of the warning, the Met Office is telling residents to be wary of large waves and beach debris which could cause "injuries and danger to life."
