Storm Eleanor: Travel disruption and homes without power

  • UK Business

The Met Office said the strongest winds had now passed, but a yellow warning is in force for England, Wales and Northern Ireland until 19:00 GMT.

Four people were injured by falling trees during the storm.



As the storm swept into France, a skier was killed by a falling tree in the Alps and 15 others injured elsewhere.

In the UK, fallen trees and debris caused numerous road closures and delays on public transport, and several major bridges were closed due to high winds.

In Cornwall, some residents have been advised to leave their homes at high tide because of a collapsed stone harbour wall in Portreath. The council says the advice is a precaution.

The Met Office said that during the storm gusts of more than 70mph were recorded across much of the UK.

The strongest gusts were 100mph recorded at Great Dun Fell in Cumbria at 01:00, 90mph at Orlock Head, Northern Ireland and 89mph on the Isle of Wight.
