There have been dramatic scenes across the UK after Storm Arwen brought gusts of almost 100mph, causing road closures, train delays and power cuts.
At least three people have been killed in different parts of the country as trees were blown over in the strong winds.
Cumbria Police said a man from Lancaster died in Ambleside after a tree fell on him just before 11pm on Friday. In Northern Ireland, a man was killed when his car was hit by a falling tree in County Antrim, also on Friday. And Police Scotland said a 35-year-old man died when his pick-up truck was struck by a falling tree on the B977 Dyce to Hatton of Fintray Road in Aberdeenshire at about 5.45pm on Friday.
The Met Office had issued a red wind warning for parts of north-east England on Friday, while a yellow warning for snow and ice is now in place until mid-morning on Sunday in Scotland and the North of England.

Summing up the damage caused by the first named storm of the season, the Met Office said the strong winds and a mixture of rain, sleet and snow led to “power cuts, transport disruption, trees fell, there were large coastal waves and blizzards affected some hills.”
