A new storm will hit the UK as thousands of people are still without electricity following Storm Arwen, the Met Office has warned.

Storm Barra is the second storm this season after Storm Arwen, in which a head teacher died after a falling tree hit his car.

A low pressure system moving across the UK from the Atlantic is likely to bring high winds to many parts of UK today, the Met Office said.

From Tuesday the UK is expected to see some further wind, rain and snow – with the chance of stronger winds, though less strong than Arwen, through Wednesday.

An amber weather warning has been issued for London and south-east England, with ‘strong winds are expected to affect much of the UK on Tuesday, with potential travel disruption in places.’, the Met Office said.

Another Two Dark Hedges trees have also been blown away by the high winds of Storm Arwen.

The long delays in restoring power to thousands of homes in the north of England and Scotland have led regulator Ofgem to warn it is opening enforcement action against grid companies for failing to do enough power quickly enough in the aftermath of the storm.

Simon Partridge, a weather forecaster at the Met Office, told The Mirror: “In terms of the process of reconnecting power supplies and getting to remote areas, it’s not helpful – probably tomorrow being the best day and probably the first half of Tuesday as well, some decent conditions.
