Now gales will batter Britain as miserable summer holiday weather continues

Gales of more than 50mph will batter coastal areas as “unseasonably strong winds” threaten to disrupt holidaymakers’ outdoor activities.

A yellow weather warning for Wales, the West Midlands, London and the south-east as well as the south-west has been issued by the Met Office
