Strong winds have forced the M48 Severn Bridge crossing to close.

The bridge is closed eastbound between junction 2 (Newhouse) and junction 1 (Aust).

There are also restrictions on the westbound carriageway which is closed to high-sided vehicles (height limit of 6ft 9 inches), caravans, motorcyclists and other vulnerable road users.

Storm Callum has caused winds of up to 76mph.

Western Power Distribution said more than 950 homes had been left without electricity in south-west England.

A number of wind and rain warnings have been issued by the Met Office.
