Storm Ophelia: homes still without power and rail lines blocked
Disruption continues in northern England and Scotland but the storm’s force has weakened from Monday’s 100mph winds
Up to 1,700 homes in Cumbria and Lancashire are without power and several key rail lines in northern England and Scotland are blocked by fallen trees as disruption from Storm Ophelia continues.
Its force has weakened since it ripped through Ireland, causing three deaths and widespread disruption on Monday. But a yellow warning for winds of up 70mph will remain in place for the south-east of Scotland and parts of north-east England until 3pm on Tuesday.
