Hurricane “Gonzalo” Batters Britain

Deaths and damages as Hurricane Gonzalo batters Britain with 70mph winds and heavy rain. Delays at airports.

 

A woman died after being hit by a falling tree in London, while a man was killed after the van he was repairing fell on him. Another man, 63, died after his car hit a railway bridge in Merseyside. Three more were injured by a falling tree in West Sussex.

 

Huge waves have battered the coast this morning as the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo lead to winds of up to 70mph and two weeks of rainfall in just a few hours.

 

Passengers faced delays on planes, trains, and in their cars this morning as 10,000 people were delayed at Heathrow, with more disruption predicted for this evening.
