Plane abandons landing as Storm Erik batters Heathrow with winds

Plane abandons landing as Storm Erik batters Heathrow with winds

Part of a doubledecker bus in Poole, Dorset, was crushed by a felled trunk and a road in south Belfast was closed when a number of branches fell on the bonnet of a auto.

After Storm Erik brought down trees and caused disruption to rail services, this is what forecasters have predicted is in store for Sheffield for the rest of the weekend.

327 homes in the Cullion area of Letterkenny, 138 homes in Rossgier near Lifford and 33 houses in Buncrana are without power this morning following last night's storm force winds.

A man was pushing the pram across the footpath when the strong winds lifted his hat off his head.

A weather warning for wind on Saturday remains in place for England, while in Scotland heavy rain is expected into the afternoon, with a risk of flooding in some parts, the Met Office said.

The improved weather will be a relief for Britons in various parts of the United Kingdom who suffered the wrath of Storm Erik on Friday and Saturday.

New York Knicks waive FETO-linked basketball player
Jordan could be one of the new foundations for NY - assuming they are able to offer him a hard-to-resist contract in the summer. If, for whatever reason, the Knicks kept Kanter , he likely would have continued the post-game rants through season's end.

In Yorkshire, the Ouse Bridge on the M62 and the Humber Bridge on the A15 were closed in both directions to high-sided and vulnerable vehicles.

Tonight (Sunday) across the country temperatures will start to drop, with Monday also facing struggling temperatures as people wake up.

Things should be slightly calmer in England and Wales, where sunny spells are expected.

The wet and windy weather could follow a period of drier and colder weather, which could cause snowfall over high ground with the chance of some snow affecting low levels as well.

Mr Keates added: "It will be a brighter second-half of the day for Wales, south-west and northern England with a few showers thrown into the mix as well".
