Winds of 74 miles per hour have been recorded off the Isles of Scilly.

Strong winds and heavy rain have battered the South West, bringing down trees.

Hundreds of homes across Devon and Cornwall woke up with no power, and there's been some localised flooding.

The bad weather's affected transport too - with some trees brought down in the strong winds, and restrictions put on the Tamar Bridge to High sided vehicles.

 

Our emergency services are warning us to take extra care, and say we should NEVER drive through floodwater.

 

There's a yellow weather warning in place for much of the South West.
