Here is just some of the disruption caused by Storm Isha from around the UK:

Emergency services were called to Welch Way in Witney after a building partially collapsed. The area has been cordoned off to prevent injury from any further collapse and for structural investigations to take place. No one was injured in the incident.

In Scotland, fallen trees affected transport, with Traffic Scotland reporting stretches of the M9 and M74 were among roads closed throughout the night, while the A1 southbound was closed at Thorntonloch due to an overturned lorry.

High winds forced the closure of the Tay Road Bridge, M48 Severn Bridge and the A66 in Durham and Cumbria between the A1(M) and the M6, while the Humber Bridge, A19 Tees Flyover and A628 Woodhead Pass in Derbyshire were among stretches closed to high-sided vehicles.

ScotRail services have been suspended since 7pm on Sunday and are not expected to resume until around noon on Monday as dozens of lines are closed due to fallen trees and flooding.

High routes have been closed while fallen trees are causing chaos on local and rural roads. The A66 is shut in both directions between Scotch Corner and the M6 in Cumbria after “several lorries” overturned. The route was initially closed to high-sided vehicles before a full closure was brought in at about 10pm last night.
