Today the UK was on the receiving end of what was the most powerful Atlantic hurricane since 2011. Hurricane Gonzalo pummelled the islands of Bermuda on Friday, hurtled through Newfoundland and Canada on Saturday and Sunday before assuming the status of an  ‘extra tropical storm’ on Sunday night. Whirling across the Atlantic, Gonzalo whipped wildly around the UK today.

Gusts of 108 miles per hour were recorded in the Cairngorms, tragically two people died and several were injured throughout the UK.
