Storm Ciara in 15 dramatic pictures

Storm Ciara swept across the UK on Sunday 9th February, bringing heavy rain, strong winds and major disruption. Winds of up to 100mph caused damage to railway lines, while flooding meant 20,000 people spent the night without power.

"While Storm Ciara is clearing away, that doesn't mean we're entering a quieter period of weather," Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill told the BBC. "It's going to stay very unsettled. We have got colder air coming through the UK and will be feeling a real drop in temperatures, with an increased risk of snow in northern parts of the UK and likely in Scotland."

The Met Office is also urging people to check before they travel. Forecasters are expecting unsettled weather to last until Wednesday 12th February.
