Met Office issues new yellow weather warnings for Lancashire as Storm Franklin l...

Both of the Met Office's ultra-rare "red" weather warnings over the impact of extremely strong winds have now elapsed, but Eunice’s impact is expected to continue.

John Curtin, executive director of operations with the Environment Agency, said: "We are not through it yet. We have still got to see Storm Eunice go to the far parts of the coast - Cumbria and Kent.

"Then we will be turning our eyes to rivers, especially the River Severn. If you are anywhere near a river, please check your flood risk."

He added: "Every storm seems to be breaking records.

"I have been doing this for 30 years and the weather seems to be just getting worse and worse.

"I think this is showing climate change in action."

These were the areas that experienced a power cut in Lancashire:
