Met Office predicts widespread travel disruption and danger of injury from flying debris and warns people to be prepared
The Met Office is warning of significant disruption from gale-force winds and heavy rain in much of Britain as the balmy start to the week is due to be blown away by Storm Doris.
Thursday has been nicknamed Doris Day, when the fourth named storm of the season is expected to damage buildings, interrupt power supplies and cause widespread travel problems.
