The warning for Cheshire is due to come into force at 8.00pm with winds expected to reach 50-60mph across the county. The peak of the storm is due to hit in the early hours of Wednesday 13 September, when gust of 65-75mph expected.

Inspector Richard Rees from Cheshire Police said "Thankfully the worst of Storm Aileen is set to hit Cheshire during the early hours of Wednesday morning, which should minimise the impact of the disruption. However, with winds expected to reach 75mph, fallen trees and power lines are likely, which may result in road closures. Therefore I would advise all motorists to allow extra time for their journey on Wednesday morning and take extra care while travelling."
