Powerful Storm Katie unleashed wind, rain and snow across the United Kingdom from Sunday night into Monday.
“Storm Katie may never have been destined to be a record-breaker, but nonetheless she certainly swept dramatically over southern Britain during the night of Easter Sunday and into the morning on Easter Monday,” the Met Office said in their blog.
The hardest-hit areas included Greater London where wind gusts of 60 mph (97 km/h) were reported.
