UK braced for severe storm

As a powerful storm makes its way towards England and Wales, commuters have been urged to be prepared for ‘potentially significant travel disruption’.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for winds of up to 80mph in Wales, the west and east Midlands, east and south-west of England, and London and the south-east.

Train companies have cancelled early-morning services, and London bound flights have been reduced.

Gusts of up to 80mph (130km/h) are predicted as the weather hits the South West then moves north and eastwards amid fears of flooding and damage.
