Winds in Dublin break the speed limit as Storm Callum arrives

Weather warnings are in place for strong winds and heavy rain

In Wales further flood warnings have been issued as the heavy rain continues.

A yellow weather warning is in place in those areas - and parts of northern and south western England as well as some of Scotland - while a higher amber alert is in force for Wales.

The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for parts of the Dorset coast, as well as 58 flood alerts across England, while Natural Resources Wales has 28 flood warnings and 39 flood alerts in place.

Storm Callum is expected to cause further disruption on Saturday as the United Kingdom continues to be battered by heavy downpours.

Network Rail has advised passengers to check services before travelling because it expects some trains to be delayed or cancelled.

Although all Irish rail services have resumed, delays remain due to "debris on the line and heavy leaf fall overnight causing low rail adhesion issues", according to Irish Rail.

"Storm Callum is now way to the north of the United Kingdom but the rain does still keep coming over the next 12 hours or so".

Coasts on the South and Western parts of the country are set to be most badly affected.

The forecaster says Friday will see Storm Callum causing further severe and locally damaging wind gusts to parts of the northwest today but winds will gradually moderate elsewhere.

Sioned Warrell, NRW's duty tactical manager, said: 'We have seen a significant amount of rain over the last 24 hours and this will continue today.

Parts of the south and east escaped completely with dry conditions and temperatures in the mid-20s, with Donna Nook in Lincolnshire reaching 26.5C, making it the warmest October day in seven years, the Met Office said.

The Met Office is advising people to take caution as the weather could cause power cuts, travel disruptions and flooding.
