Video: Driffield traders brave high winds

Waiting for Video...

Brave market stall holders have turned out, despite galeforce winds, in an attempt to trade at Driffield’s weekly market.

Winds of up to 80mph forecasted to hit the region.

The Met Office’s “amber warning” is in place between 2am and 4pm today (Thursday 5 December).

Also, on the east coast – covering the Whitby, Scarborough and Filey areas in North Yorkshire – people are urged to keep away from sea walls, piers and other water fronts as heavy waves are expected to crash over the sea defences.

The heavy waves are expected to hit during Thursday afternoon due to a combination of the strong wind and the high spring tide.
