A major storm battered southern parts of the UK, with winds of almost 100mph tearing through property and causing flooding and major travel disruption.
More than 7,000 homes in the Bristol and Bath area have reportedly been left without power, flights and rail services across the country have been cancelled or delayed and there is widespread flooding in southern parts of England as rain and hurricane-force winds arrived from the South West.
Trees have been brought down by high winds, damaging property, and a number of roads left impassable by floodwater.
A teenage boy is also feared dead after being swept out to sea in Newhaven, East Sussex yesterday afternoon.
The Met Office said wind reached more than 99mph on the Isle of Wight at 5am and the Environment Agency has issued 14 flood warnings for the South West, as well as 146 flood alerts for the rest of England and Wales.
