Travel chaos & power cuts as storm hits

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY LOUIE SMITH louie.smith@mir­

SPOT­LIGHT Cad­bury owner THE ac­coun­tant for Cad­bury owner Mon­delez was pre­vi­ously ac­cused of prac­tices with “char­ac­ter­is­tics of a mass-mar­keted tax avoid­ance scheme”.

A 2015 re­port by MPs rapped ar­range­ments to di­vert prof­its via Lux­em­bourg that PwC pro­moted to clients. Mon­delez was not among firms named as hav­ing been given ad­vice.

The Mir­ror re­vealed this week that the US gi­ant’s big­gest UK arm paid no cor­po­ra­tion tax last year. Dog feels force WINDS of up to 77mph caused chaos yes­ter­day as Storm Callum bar­relled into the UK.

More than 1,500 homes in the North West, South West and Wales lost power.

Tor­ren­tial rain led the Met Of­fice to is­sue an am­ber warn­ing for South Wales and winds grounded jets at Cardiff, Belfast and Ex­eter air­ports.

All trains in and out of Devon were stopped as huge waves crashed over tracks on top of a sea wall.

Tim Jones, chair of the South West Busi­ness Coun­cil, said such “ex­treme weather events” are costly, adding: “We reckon the im­pact on busi­ness to be around £10mil­lion.”

The At­lantic storm hit in the early hours and the high­est winds were in Snow­do­nia. Some parts of Wales face 200mm of rain in 72 hours and the south coast had more than 20 flood alerts and two flood warn­ings.

Wales and the North West will get heavy rain to­day, clear­ing to­mor­row as it moves east across the coun­try.
