Tottenham and Burnley have flights cancelled as Storm Eunice causes travel chaos with Bournemouth vs Forest in doubt

STORM Eunice has wrought havoc on sporting fixtures this weekend as 100mph winds batter the UK.

Premier League clubs are battling to rearrange their travel plans as flights were grounded and transport bosses told millions to stay indoors.

Both Tottenham and Burnley face having to make long-haul BUS journeys to away fixtures this weekend with planes unable to fly.

Spurs are set to face Manchester City at the Etihad while Burnley are due to head south to take on Brighton.

The Clarets' flight has already been cancelled while Spurs will decide later today whether to go by road or hope the weather improves enough to fly.

Bournemouth’s Championship clash with Nottingham Forest is under threat after the Met Office issued a RED weather warning for vast swathes of the South Coast.

In a statement the Cherries said a decision over whether or not to play the game would be taken later on Friday.

It read: “The club is working alongside its Safety Advisory Group, the EFL and Nottingham Forest, and will provide relevant information to all those planning to travel as soon as possible on Friday.”

Power lines are also likely to be torn down, with the potential for roofs to be blown off and widespread power outages.
