A spokesman for the Met Office told The Evening Express some of the strongest winds were recorded between 2pm and 3pm.

He said: “It will be windy again this morning but it won’t be as bad as the weather warning ends at 9am.

“It will continue to be windy across the east coast of Scotland as well.”
