After the latest weather warning, the Met Office has shared advice on preparing for "severe weather" over the winter. Met Office Meteorologist and resilience expert Will Lang, who leads responses in times of severe weather, said: "Severe winter weather can impact us all, but it’s important to remember that some are more vulnerable than others, especially the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

"Ahead of severe weather, I’d encourage anyone to check on people they know could be vulnerable and help them take steps to keep safe this winter."

He added: "People can take just a few simple steps ahead of winter in order to help mitigate the impacts. Whether that’s preparing your garden, clearing your gutters or ensuring you have an emergency kit prepared, these small steps now can save hassle in times of severe weather and can make sure people can make the most of it.
