Tree blown over by strong winds in Liverpool.PA

Strong winds are hitting parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England and northern Wales today.

The gusts are the remainders of Hurricane Katia. Though they're not as strong as the hurricane in America, the bad weather is still causing problems in parts of the UK.

How has it affected you? Has the windy weather meant your school's been closed or you've had to stay indoors?

Or maybe a member of your family or your neighbour hasn't been able to go to work?
