More than 100 flood warnings and alerts have been put in place by the Environment Agency as winds reach 80-plus miles an hour.

More ‘storm surges’ are also expected throughout the day as areas of low pressure cause problems.

Gale-force winds are also expected to cause problems with travel with public transport likely to be affected most.
