A scene near Cobham, Surrey, where a clump of seven trees were blown over by gale-force winds. Sally Webb, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "It will be quite blustery later but through the day the winds are weakening gradually. Overnight it should calm down a lot compared to how it has been."

Power lines blocked a bus route in Plymouth after they were brought down between Little Comfort and Treburley and a sandbank whipped up by the strong winds from a beach closed a road in Widemouth Bay, near Bude in Cornwall.
