Weather forecasters are warning another storm could be on its way to the UK this weekend – bringing gusts of up to 70mph to East Anglia.
The Met Office have issued a weather warning covering Suffolk and Essex for Saturday, the most likely day for high winds to batter the coastline.
Although they have not yet named the storm, the next name on their list is Brian.
Expert Chris Bell, from Weatherquest, said a low pressure system is set to make its way over northern England in the next few days.
He said: “There is a warning in place for London and the south east.
“The winds will hit the coast the hardest and we could see high speeds of around 60mph and possibly more in parts of East Anglia.
“An area of low pressure is coming across which could cause these high winds.”
He added: “Most of the rain will clear by Friday and the winds will be the main issue on Saturday.
“People who live in areas with a lot of trees just need to be a bit more careful because there is an increased risk of some coming down.”
