A powerful storm that has caused power cuts to 10,000 homes and major travel disruption across Britain is set to continue, forecasters have warned.
Although the first wave of the storm caused only localised flooding, the Met Office has issued warnings of more severe gales expected to hit the South West.
Bristol Channel, Severn Estuary and the Somerset coast are among the main areas at risk, while Environment Agency bulldozers shored up shingle to shield the coast in Kent and Sussex.
The storm developed from a band of exceptionally low pressure that crossed the Atlantic yesterday, combined with higher than average spring tides.
The highest wind speed recorded was 82mph in Berry Head in Brixham, south Devon, as well as at the Mumbles in Swansea.
