The duo of Storm Eunice and Storm Franklin have brought upon countrywide disruption to services such as travel in the last week - but how are bin and recycling collections affected in Bristol?

In the wake of Eunice and Dudley, Storm Franklin has arrived in the UK and is mainly impacting northern regions of the country - bringing high speed winds that exceed 60mph.

However, the Met Office has placed a yellow weather warning for wind in Bristol as experts fear similar disruption caused by Storm Eunice.

The warning, which is set to expire on Monday 21 February at 1pm, comes following red and amber warnings issued to Bristol last weekend as a result of the dangerous Storm Eunice.

Recent bad weather has caused problems for various services across the city such as air travel and trains - but have bin and recycling collections been affected too?
