But the weather looks set to do a U-turn this week with temperatures beginning to climb to 23C by Thursday – making it hotter than Athens.

The south, Wales and the Midlands will see the best of the weather with glorious sunshine as Brits enjoy an Indian Summer.

But the north will see more wind and outbreaks of rain through the week and cloudier skies – although temperatures will still be warmer than the recent chillier conditions.

And sunshine is predicted for most the UK this weekend after last Saturday and Sunday were washed out by the two named storms.

And an engineer, aged in his 20s, was then killed by a falling tree in Slieve Gullion Forest Park in Newry, Northern Ireland.

A woman in Cheshire was seriously injured when a tree fell on to her car in the high winds – fire crews eventually freed the woman before she was taken to hospital by air ambulance.

As the clean up began, Storm Bronagh then slammed into the UK with strong winds and heavy rain causing travel chaos.

  1. Yes some customers may be disappointed from time 2 time (which company doesn’t experience this?) but the staff do everything in their power 2 help, even when faced with aggressive/abusive non co operative customers & these are most likely the people showing their true colours now with their nasty comments. So who do u trust?
    -Last of all I want 2 finish on a positive note, wishing all people that r suffering financial difficulties, threat of unemployment or any of the many other troubles most of us have 2 face in this day & age all the best, may things turn around 4 u very swiftly xx
