Homes could be left without power as Storm Eleanor sweeps in

POWER supplies could be disrupted as the first named storm of 2018 sweeps across the country overnight.

The Met Office has updated a yellow ‘be aware’ warning for wind, which is now valid from 6pm on Tuesday until 6pm on Wednesday.

A spokesman said: “The warning has been adjusted to bring the northern boundary southwards, and to combine with the warning previously in force for Wednesday.

“Public transport may be disrupted or cancelled and some bridges are likely to be closed.

“Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may also occur, while injuries from flying debris are possible.”
