Hundreds of homes without power as gale force winds batter Wales

MORE than 300 homes across Wales are without power following weather bringing gusts of up to 65mph.
A yellow Met Office warning is in force until 09:00pm on Tuesday (May 4) for most of Wales.

There were delays on the A55 in north Wales and on the A40 between Carmarthen and St Clears in south-west Wales due to bank holiday.

Train services have also been disrupted on the Cowny Valley Line between Blaenau Ffestiniog and Llandudno because of flooding so rail replacement services are in operation.

Meanwhile, strong winds have caused extra speed restrictions on bridges across Wales.
The speed limit on the A55 Britannia Bridge has been set to 30mph, with restrictions in place for motorcycles and caravans.

In Milford Haven fire brigade crews were called out to a wind related incident.

The Cleddau Bridge was closed to vehicles over 1.9m in height from 3pm on Monday (May 3).
