Mayhem as Callum storms in
STORM Callum battered Britain yesterday, causing floods and power cuts.
Heavy downpours and gales wreaked havoc in the west – while parts of the south and east saw temperatures soar to 26C (78.8F).
Wales, Scotland, and the north west and south east of England were all hit with a yellow weather warning as thousands of households were left without power.
Torrential rain and winds of more than 70mph buffeted Northern Ireland and the west coast of Britain.
In south Wales, the Brecon Beacons village of Libanus recorded more than a month’s worth of rain in just 48 hours.
Others areas had the warmest mid-October day for 17 years, with Norfolk and Lincolnshire hitting 26C after one of the mildest October nights on record.
