Meteorologist Dan Stroud said that gusts are starting to ease in England and Wales.

He said: "It’s an improving picture across England and Wales but there’s still some very strong gusts actually further north across Northern Ireland and Scotland.

"But we’re expecting the peak of the wind gusts in Storm Agnes to gradually ease during the overnight period."
