The fire service has also advised people to stay indoors, if possible, and limit travel.

Nottinghamshire County Council also urged people to stay at home if they can with wind gusts expected to be around 60mph or above throughout Friday, February 18.

Network Rail also people not to travel in the East Midlands or on the East Coast Main Line.

Trentbarton has also published an updated list of buses which will not run today.

There are disruptions to the i4, 141 and threes services, the bus company said.

Parks across the county have also been closed.

Sherwood Forest, Rufford Abbey, Holme Pierrepont and Bestwood Country Park will all be shut to visitors to ensure safety.

The county council said: “Advice for residents includes only travelling if essential, staying away from wooded areas and parks and checking for updates from public transport providers before making any journeys.”
