The hottest October day for five years seems like a distant memory as fierce downpours and gale-force winds lash the UK.

The Met Office has enforced a rare red weather warning in Aberdeenshire and Angus, as eastern Scotland braces for "exceptional" rainfall with floodwaters posing a "danger to life".

Storm Babet hit Ireland on Wednesday after sweeping in from the Atlantic, with more than a month's worth of rain in 24 hours transforming streets into rivers.

And as Britain battens down the hatches for three more days of intense downpours and winds of up to 70mph, social media users have been flooding the platforms with videos and photos of the meteorological drama.

Here, indy100 will keep you updated with all the most stunning and frightening images from X/Twitter as the storm rolls on...
