Storm Brendan has eased and is sitting just to the north of the UK, while another low pressure is now heading across England

Weather warnings remain in force across the UK after Storm Brendan battered the country with winds of nearly 90mph on Monday.

After plaguing parts of Ireland, causing thousands of homes and businesses to lose power, the storm brought high winds to parts of England and Scotland.

A second low-pressure front brought further high winds to much of England and Wales on Tuesday, with the Environment Agency (EA) warning strong winds, high tides and large waves could lead to flooding.

The high winds forced airlines to divert flights scheduled to land at Gatwick Airport, while also causing disruption to ferries and railways.

Passengers faced delays and temporary speed limits due to the heavy winds and fallen trees, while drivers were advised to take extra care on the roads.

Cross Country said that due to the strong gales, services were suspended between Southampton Central and Bournemouth.

A yellow weather warning for rain in the south-east of England remains in place until 9am on Wednesday, while 22 flood warnings and 145 flood alerts had been issued by the EA on Tuesday evening.

The Met Office said the strong winds were due to ease overnight into Wednesday.

Commuters were earlier warned they face a miserable journey home as strong winds caused speed restrictions on some lines while others were affected by landslides.

Passengers travelling between Southampton, Bournemouth and Weymouth were warned over disruption, while there were also delays between Penzance and Exeter, and between London and Cambridge, Ely and Kings Lynn.

Network Rail shut the railway between Horsham and Dorking after a landslip near Ockley in Surrey as further warnings for this evening told of another low pressure system sweeping in after Storm Brendan hit yesterday.
