Storm Barra has hit the UK and Ireland with disruptive winds, heavy rain and snow forecasted, according to the Met Office.

Following the disruption left by Storm Arwen, Storm Barra brought with it more problems, leaving even more people up and down the country without power.

Weather warnings for snow, ice, rain and wind were issued as Storm Barra swept in from the Atlantic.

A yellow warning for ice across Cumbria was issued late on Monday evening alongside warnings of wind and snow.

The yellow warning for ice covered the whole of Cumbria and was due to be in place until 9am on Tuesday, December 7.
