Britain is bracing for Cyclone Barra as it braced for severe weather including heavy snow, ice, 80 mph gales and rain.
The storm is life-threatening and has the potential to cause chaos across Britain, with forecasters warning of flying debris, blizzards, flooding, hazardous driving conditions and delays in moving.
The Met Office said gusts could reach 80mph, up to 8ins (20cm) of snow on higher ground and heavy rain could lead to flooding, the Met Office said.
The forecaster has issued severe weather warnings covering much of the UK as Barra – the second storm of the season – sweeps in from the Atlantic Ocean.
Barra is sweeping as thousands of homes remain without power 11 days after Hurricane Arwen killed at least three people and caused chaos across the country.
