Met Office issues amber warning

The Isle of Man Met Office has issued an amber weather warning ahead of the expected impact of Storm Barbara tomorrow.

A deep Atlantic low system is forecast to hit the Island from Friday morning until mid afternoon.

Having already issued a yellow warning earlier in the week, forecasters now say storm force winds reaching up to 70mph could hit at lunchtime.

The Met Office warns the conditions could result in some damage as well as travel disruption.

It's expected there could be water coming over the sea walls as well as debris.
