28 10 2013

Southern England was hit by a major Atlantic storm, which could be its worst in years.

Strong winds blew and heavy rains fell late Sunday.

Two people were killed by falling trees in the severe storm and Sky News reported that a 14-year-old boy, named locally as Dylan Alkins, is feared dead after being swept out to sea on Sunday in Newhaven, East Sussex.

Hurricane-speed winds of up to 100mph swept across the South West, South, South East, the Midlands and the East of England.

Several London Underground and train services were suspended, the port of Dover in Kent temporarily shut after gusts of 65 knots were recorded in the area.

More than 130 flights at Heathrow Airport were cancelled because of the weather.

The Environment Agency said there were 12 flood warnings in place across the South West, the Midlands and the East of England.
