May­hem as Callum storms in

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

GALE: Porth­cawl, S Wales
