Final Year LJMU student Suzy Johnson said: “I am worried about these weather warnings because I do rely on public transport to get to uni and after Arriva went on strike in the summer, I struggled to get around the city as I do live far out.

“Being in third year of university it is of course vital to have good attendance and studying early childhood studies I do need to be there to get placements sorted. So yes, I am worried and quite stressed.”

Deputy Chief Meteorologist Rebekah Sherwin said: “There is a chance the deep low-pressure system will bring gusts of 70 to 80 mph in northern parts of the UK on Wednesday. ”

The yellow warning means that there could also be a small chance of injuries and danger to life.
