All of the houses that lost power during the Christmas storms have been reconnected.

At the height of the storms more than 150,000 properties were cut off and around 600 homes still had no electricity at the start of Sunday.

The environment secretary, Owen Paterson said that some power companies had "let their customers down badly" over Christmas.

The bad weather also caused huge travel disruption and flooding in the run-up to Christmas.

The Met Office has warned some parts of the UK to "be aware" of more gales and heavy rain on Monday.
