'Weather bomb': Severe gale warning for Scotland

Ferry and rail services in Scotland have been cancelled as winds strengthen ahead of an Atlantic storm that is due to hit the UK later.

The Met Office has issued a yellow "be aware" warning for most of the UK for later on Tuesday, Wednesday and early on Thursday.

For Scotland, it has been upgraded to an amber "be prepared" warning.

Severe gales have been forecast as well as sea swells for parts of Scotland of up to 40ft (12m).

Laura Bicker reports.
