Storm Ciaran in pictures: Flooded streets and huge waves as parts of England hit by high winds and driving rain | UK News

Amber warnings were in effect from Storm Ciaran, which brought hurricane-force winds and destroyed an 180-year-old cottage.

The storm, the second to hit the UK in the last month, has caused major disruption and flooding in the south of the country.

While weather warnings for the south of England have now expired, some yellow alerts from the Met Office are still in place throughout the rest of the week.

Pictures taken today showed the impact of Storm Ciaran on the worst-hit parts of the UK. In Newhaven, large waves were seen cresting near the top of a lighthouse, while gusts up to 63mph hit Sussex.

Meanwhile, the northeast of England also saw impacts with roads in Whitley Bay flooded.
