Storm Erik batters Britain with rain and 70mph winds

A weather warning for wind on Saturday has been extended to cover most of the UK, while in Scotland heavy rain is expected into the afternoon, with a risk of flooding in some parts, the Met Office said.

Much of the country will see strong winds and rain showers, some mixed with hale and becoming thundery, meteorologist Alex Burkill said.

“It’s going to be another very windy one, particularly across northern England, Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern Wales. They’re going to have very strong winds.
