Over 500 homes are currently experiencing power shortages

Storm Agnes – which caused havoc across the UK yesterday with its 80mph winds – has had all of its warnings cancelled by the Met office.

The storm has now started to clear away to the northeast and the yellow weather warnings which were originally in place for today, have now been removed.

Yet whilst the warnings have passed, many are still feeling the effects of the storm.

According to the National Grid, 10 different areas ranging from Truro to Sheffield are experiencing power cuts this morning.

Approximately 563 properties are currently affected by the power shortages.

The latest the energy company expects all issues will be resolved will be by 2pm this afternoon.

Storm Agnes brought travel disruption, flooding and power outages across many parts of the UK.

Over 130 properties on the Isles of Sicily, experienced power outages for around four hours yesterday.

Train operators issued warnings of potential disruptions to services, whilst an EasyJet plan was unable to land in Belfast due to ferocious winds.
