UK weather: Stormy conditions hit power supplies
Hundreds of homes in parts of the UK were left without electricity earlier after severe gales.
Scores of homes in Northern Ireland were still without power on Monday night while homes in north-west England had been reconnected.
Gusts of up to 84mph were recorded in the Outer Hebrides.
Meanwhile, a 61-year-old man died at an East Yorkshire seaside resort after being hit by masonry. It is not know if the incident was weather-related.
The BBC Weather Centre said high winds on Monday were due to low pressure in the Atlantic which has pushed a weather front from west to east across the UK.
A spokeswoman for BBC Weather said: "This is a very typical autumnal set up, but as we have had an exceptionally dry September and the trees are still in leaf, wind and rain events like this can, and have, caused some disruption."
On Monday night, Northern Ireland Electricity said 150 customers were without power - down from more than 7,000 earlier.
A spokeswoman said the company was "doing everything possible to restore power to customers in worst affected areas" as fast as it could.
Electricity North West said it had restored electricity for all customers after 3,000 were without power earlier on Monday.
- In the eastern counties of Northern Ireland, power lines and street lights were knocked down
- Police say masonry struck a man and a vehicle near Pleasureland on Cliff Street, Bridlington, East Yorkshire, at about 13:00 BST. He later died.
- Flooding and strong winds caused serious disruption across south Wales
- In Cumbria, two schools were closed and a large amount of debris was left on roads
- Ferry sailings in the Hebrides and the west coast of Scotland have been badly affected, and the Skye Bridge was closed to traffic for several hours
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning, meaning "be aware", for severe gale force winds for parts of north-east Scotland.
A further yellow warning for rain, for north-east Scotland, will come into effect at 02:00 on Tuesday.
There is also disruption to some public transport after overhead wires were damaged.
National Rail said no Virgin Trains or First TransPennine Express services would be travelling north of Preston on Monday night.
The inclement conditions come after the Met Office confirmed on Monday that last month was the driest September since records began.
