The Fal River ferry in Cornwall has also been cancelled on Monday.

BBC Weather presenter Peter Gibbs said a strong Atlantic jet stream was providing the "driving force" for the storm.

The strongest winds are expected on the storm's southern and western flanks.

Forecasters said a "very intense low pressure system" would bring the potential for strong winds, especially on exposed coasts in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, West Sussex, East Sussex and Kent.
