Storm Franklin UK – travel updates: Trains cancelled and roads shut as flooding and 75mph winds hit

Homes have been evacuated and people have been warned not to travel as Storm Franklin hits the UK with 75mph winds.

It’s the third storm to strike in four days, causing more damage and disruption.

There has been severe flooding in Northern Ireland, and people in Manchester and Yorkshire have had too flee their homes. In Llandinam, Wales, seven people were rescued by boat after their houses were inundated.

National Rail is advising travellers to check their routes before setting off, train operator Northern has temporarily cancelled all its services in the North West, and Southeastern railway and CrossCountry trains are “strongly” advising against travel.

Storm Franklin comes hot on the heels of Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice, which killed three people in the UK and left 1.4 million homes without power. Tens of thousands are still without electricity.

A yellow weather warning is in place across much of England, southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland until 1pm today.
