  • The bank holiday weekend is off to a very windy start, especially in Scotland, where the Scottish Environment Protection Agency has put five flood alerts in place as spells of heavy rain are expected to hit.
  • As drier and brighter weather is expected on bank holiday Monday, people are being urged to stay away from beaches as crowding in recent days have raised fears over social distancing.
  • The National Trust is urging people across England to stay close to home and explore local green spaces and countryside this weekend, as part of the collective effort to make easing of the lockdown work.
