Tens of thousands of homes are without power and commuters are facing major travel disruption after hurricane-force winds battered the UK.

Forecasters predict some respite from stormy weather on Thursday, but another Atlantic low could bring gales of more than 80mph from Friday.

Severe flood warnings remain for Berkshire, Surrey and Somerset - all already hit by severe flooding. Ben Geoghegan reports.
