The UK is being battered by Storm Eunice, which forecasters warn could be one of the worst storms in three decades. At least two people have been injured in England and a man has died in the Republic of Ireland after being hit by a falling tree. People are being urged to avoid travelling and stay at home. Hundreds of schools are closed and trains and flights cancelled. An amber warning for wind is in place across the Midlands, southern England and Wales. There are also yellow warnings for snow, ice and wind in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
