Date of alert:
Wednesday, 27 September 2023
Farmers have been urged to 'act now' to protect their farms 'before it's too late', as the UK's first named storm of the autumn and winter season approaches.
Named by the Met Office, Storm Agnes is forecast to bring gales of up to 80mph to many parts of the UK.
A yellow severe weather warning for wind has been issued from Wednesday through Thursday morning.
NFU Mutual has called on farmers to make their farms 'storm resilient', as strong gusts could rip off roofing sheets and cladding from rural homes and farm buildings.
