Winds of up to 90mph & “significant” flood risk as storm hits northern Britain on Thursday http://t.co/SbBl9vMnfp &
A man has also been killed by a falling tree in Retford, Nottinghamshire.
The Met Office has a yellow warning in place. It predicts that gusts could reach speeds of 70 mph (115 kph) as a storm moves in from the Atlantic. In parts of Scotland and England an orange warning – meaning to be prepared for disruption – has been issued for gusts of 80 mph (130 kph)
It’s completely normal for the time of year. We’ve got to expect a few stormy periods every winter.
