Storm Corrie barrels into Britain

With the damage from Storm Malik still being cleared, the country is braced for 90mph winds and the Met Office gave a “danger to life” warning – with snow due to hit this week.

Forecasters said further severe gusts today will make travel disruption likely, with flying debris bringing fears of power cuts.

Northern parts of the UK are expected to be hardest hit.

Corrie comes just over 24 hours after Storm Malik — which, with gusts hitting 147mph, brought death and devastation.

Two people died when they were crushed by falling trees, while others had miracle escapes.

A boy aged nine was killed  by a falling tree on the Heath House estate, in Tean, Staffs, at about 1pm on Saturday. A 72-year-old man who was also hurt was still being treated in hospital last night.

They were thought to be part of a  pheasant shooting party on the 400-acre estate but were not believed to be related to each other.
