Rain and high winds are causing travel disruption, as the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo hits the UK.
Gusts of up to 70mph have been recorded in north Wales and the Isle of Wight, and a Met Office wind warning is in place for much of the UK.
Some flights have been cancelled at Heathrow, but other airports are reporting no major problems.
Forecasters said gales would move east across the UK, with heavy rain in some areas and snow on some Scottish hills.
