Thousands of people across the country were left without electricity and sporting events were cancelled due to the storm. Flights were cancelled and rail providers warned people not to travel.

Amber warnings for wind across much of England and Wales were in place until 9pm, meaning damage to buildings, travel disruption and power cuts were expected.

Wales was hit by some of the strongest winds, with a 93mph gust recorded in Aberdaron, north-west Wales, and 86mph at Capel Curig in Snowdonia.
