he UK faced strong winds and heavy rain on Wednesday evening, causing power cuts and travel disruption with Storm Eunice set to move in.

The Met Office had issued an amber warning for strong winds covering central Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland and northern England above Hull over the evening, with yellow wind warnings in place as far south as Birmingham.

As Storm Dudley moved in during the afternoon, Capel Curig in Wales experienced gusts of up to 81mph, with Emley Moore in Yorkshire seeing 74mph winds, while Drumalbin in Scotland was hit by 71mph gales.

It comes ahead of Storm Eunice, with London North East Railway (LNER) warning customers with tickets for journeys between York and Leeds and London King’s Cross on Friday to move them to Thursday instead due to expected disruption and damage.

Snow and ice warnings were also in place until Thursday morning in northern parts of Scotland.

Social media users shared images and videos of fallen trees, large waves smashing coastal areas, howling winds and rain sweeping through quiet roads and dark and gloomy skies, with some facing delays on public transport.

One person spoke of seeing a trampoline on a train track, while others posted pictures of unusual cloud formations.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna told the PA news agency: “There’s obviously been a generally blustery picture across the country with a combination of rain and hill snow in the north.

“Some areas have seen severe gusts of up to 81mph so it’s been a very windy day but that will start to slowly ease as we go into tomorrow.

“A new yellow warning of snow and ice has been issued for northern parts of Scotland and is expected to last into Thursday morning which could create some dangerous conditions on roads and paths.”

Electricity North West said power cuts were affecting nearly 1,700 homes in Wigan and thousands more around Lancashire.
