Beware of Bronagh in the UK

Just one day after Storm Ali devastated the UK and Ireland, killing two people, now Storm Bronagh is following hot on its heels.

The Met Office and Met Eireann have warned that Storm Bronagh will  result in a danger to life and damage to buildings as it lashes the country overnight.

Storm Bronagh is expected to develop across parts of Wales and south-west England on Thursday evening, before spreading further eastwards across England.

Heavy rain is expected throughout Thursday, with a yellow weather warning in place for rain in Wales and parts of north-west England and a yellow wind warning in place for much of England and parts of Wales later in the day.

The storm is expected to bring gale force winds through the evening and overnight into Friday, with wind gusts of 45-50mph predicted around exposed coasts and at some spots inland, as well as the possibility of some gusts of up to 65mph.
