Storm Henry hammers Britain’s roads
Storm Henry shows its true force on Britain’s roads in the form of torrential rainfall and high winds of up to 90 mph causing havoc for lorry drivers in Northern England and Scotland.
Police have advised motorists not to use many open roads as trees, buildings and lorries are being blown over and the extreme weather is making it increasingly difficult for recovery teams to reach the people in need.
Many bridges in Scotland have also been closed due to the high winds such as the Forth Road Bridge and The Tay Bridge. Scottish road operators have also warned that the Skye, Kessock, Dornoch and Cromarty bridges may also close if the weather keeps gaining momentum.
Dozens of schools have closed and a 50 mph speed limit has been enforced for many rail services causing severe delays across the country.
