Travel was disrupted with fallen trees and there were power cuts across the country due to the gale force winds and rain.


  1. I feel for the people who occupie the property, not a nice thing to happen to anyone. I hope their insurance company pay out quickly and do not hide behind a clause in tbe small print, regarding evidence of continual maintenance not being available for the flat roof structure.
