Drivers travelling in and out of Suffolk this evening have been warned the Orwell Bridge will be closed. 

Highways England had taken the decision in light of strong winds caused by Storm Brendan arriving in the UK. 

The bridge will be closed from 7pm tonight. 

A yellow weather warning for strong winds is in place for Essex and Suffolk tomorrow and highways bosses said the closure could be repeated on Tuesday.

The yellow weather warning covers the next two days but is in force across Essex on Tuesday from midday until midnight.

Winds of 40-50mph are possible.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: "As it pushes though, pretty much every part of the UK will feel the influence."
