DAWLISH, England - Throwing up spectacular showers of spray, trains braved the waves along one of Britain's most scenic rail stretches on Thursday, ahead of a weekend which could see widespread travel disruption from high winds.

The line between Exeter and Plymouth at the seaside town of Dawlish in Devon, southwest England, is regularly pummelled by heavy seas and in 2014 was partially washed away when a storm destroyed a large section of sea wall.

Met Office forecasters have issued a weather warning for most of southern England for Friday and Saturday, saying strong winds could cause disruption and flooding.
