Rotherham expected to avoid worst of Hurricane Ophelia as country braces itself

GUSTS of up to 50mph could hit parts of Rotherham tonight (Monday) as the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia sweep across the country.

The Met Office said Yorkshire should avoid the worst of the weather but wind speeds are expected to pick up  overnight into Tuesday.

Parts of the Republic of Ireland have been issued with a red weather warning, meaning there is a risk to life, and the government has deployed the army.

Hurricane Ophelia will have weakened to a storm when it hits the UK and is expected to pass through Ireland, Northern Ireland and across Scotland.
