Storm Ali: Two killed as severe winds lash British Isles

Two people have died after Storm Ali swept across parts of the British Isles, bringing winds of up to 100mph.

A woman died after the caravan she was in was blown off a cliff in the Irish Republic, while in Northern Ireland a man was killed by a falling tree.

Others have been injured, including a woman who was badly hurt when a tree fell on a car in Cheshire.

Thousands of homes are without power, lorries have overturned and a cruise ship broke free from its moorings.

A yellow warning, meaning "be aware", is in place for Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England until 22:00 BST.
Ali is the UK's first named storm of the season.
