Big storm hits parts of England and Wales

  • 28 October 2013

The worst storm for 20 years has hit parts of south-west England and Wales, causing lots of disruption and damage.

More than 600,000 homes lost electricity across the southern UK, with over 200,000 still without power.

The Environment Agency had dozens of flood warnings in place across England, where flooding was expected, but the number is now down to four.

The Met Office says a gust of wind measuring 99mph was recorded on the Isle of Wight at 5am on Monday.

Lots of flights were delayed at Heathrow airport and many train services across southern England cancelled or delayed.

Network Rail said more than 100 fallen trees have been found on railway lines and many trains in the south of England have been delayed - though services are starting to get back to normal.

The storm passed through parts of England and Wales and is moving away from the UK this afternoon but the damage left behind will take some time to clear up.

Four people - a teenage girl in Kent, a man from Watford and a man and a woman in west London - are known to have been killed by the storm.
