Travel disruption to continue after Storm Ciara

Weather warnings remain in place for parts of the UK

Parts of the UK are braced for blizzards and up to 20cm of snow in the wake of Storm Ciara, with travel disruption set to continue.

Some areas saw a month and a half's rainfall in just 24 hours and gusts of more than 90 miles per hour swept across the country on Sunday, bringing widespread flooding.

Thousands of people were left without power, some homes were evacuated, buildings were damaged and sporting occasions postponed.

Flights, ferries and trains all saw cancellations and delays, while drivers faced treacherous conditions with floodwater, fallen trees and other debris closing roads.

Yellow weather warnings for wind and snow are in place for Monday in Northern Ireland and most of Scotland.  Additionally, warnings for snow and ice are in effect for parts of Cheshire, Staffordshire, Lancashire and Cumbria from 3pm Monday until midnight.  Wind warnings are in place for the entire length of the south coast for much of Monday.
