Man in 60s dies in road accident involving fallen tree

A man in his 60s has died in a road collision involving two vans and a fallen tree in Limavady, County Londonderry, on Sunday night, the Police Service of Northern Ireland has said.

A statement from the police said:

A man in his 60s has died in a collision on Broad Road in Limavady. He was the driver of a Vauxhall Vivaro van which was involved in a collision with a fallen tree and another vehicle at around 9.45pm on Sunday 21 January. The male driver of the other van involved, a Citreon Berlingo, has been taken to hospital for treatment. The road was closed for a time but has now reopened.

Thank you for reading the Guardian’s live coverage of Storm Isha. Here is a short summary of some of the day’s main developments:

An 84-year-old man has died during Storm Isha after the car he was a passenger in crashed into a fallen tree in Grangemouth on Sunday, according to Police Scotland.

A man in his 60s has died in a road collision involving two vans and a fallen tree in Limavady , County Londonderry , on Sunday night, the Police Service of Northern Ireland has said.

A number of people had to be rescued by firefighters from flooded roads in the Yorkshire Dales. North Yorkshire fire and rescue service said responders were sent to Morton Bridge, Morton-on-Swale, in the early hours of Monday to help people from four trapped vehicles.

ScotRail services across Scotland will be suspended from 7pm on Tuesday as Storm Jocelyn hits the UK and there will be no rush hour services the following morning, the railway operator has said.

Among the strongest wind gusts produced by Storm Isha so far is at Brizlee Wood in Northumberland , which recorded a high of 99mph. The village of Capel Curig in Snowdonia recorded gusts of 90mph while Needles Old Battery weather station on the Isle of White recorded a gust of 86mph

High winds have caused flight cancellations and diversions. One flight travelling from Sharm El Sheikh to Glasgow airport declared an emergency due to Storm Isha. A spokesperson for Glasgow airport said the TUI flight was “diverted to Manchester due to current weather conditions” late on Sunday.

ESB Networks reported more than 170,000 properties in Ireland were without power while Electricity North West said crews had been stood down due to the conditions with almost 8,000 homes losing power. The company said expected restoration times had been pushed back to 5pm on Tuesday.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said the weather was putting “significant pressure” on the 999 system and urged people to report non-emergencies online or by calling 101.

Stretches of the M9 and M74 were among roads closed throughout the night, Traffic Scotland says, while the A1 southbound was closed at Thorntonloch due to an overturned lorry.

The remains of a garden shed were blown on to the line at Bellgrove station in Glasgow, Network Rail says, and a small fire broke out after a tree fell on overhead wires in Gartcosh, in Cumbernauld.

The “destructive” storm-force winds have damaged overhead power lines in the north of Scotland, affecting supplies for more than 20,000 Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution customers in the area. SSEN said, as of 8.45am, supplies had been restored to more than 17,500 customers, with 10,500 properties off supply.

Thank you for following along.

Phil Campbell , the ScotRail customer operations director, said:

The heavy wind and ongoing rain hitting most parts of the country mean that it will not be safe for our customers and our staff, and all ScotRail train services will be suspended from 7pm tomorrow. This is the second withdrawal of train services this week, and we know the impact this has on customers, but the safety of staff and passengers will always be our priority.

Here are a couple more images of the cleanup from Storm Isha , which has forced some roads to close and led to at least three deaths.

Crews from ESB Networks put road closures in place near Galway airport as they work to repair power lines damaged during Storm Isha.

A spell of strong winds associated with Storm Jocelyn is expected to affect western and northern Scotland from Tuesday evening, the Met Office has said, issuing an amber weather warning.

The forcaster also issued a yellow warning in some other parts of the UK, which is expected to lead to some localised disruption.

Winds in northern Scotland are likely to reach 55-65mph quite widely, and there is potential for gusts of 75 to 80mph in a few places, in particular exposed parts of the Western Isles and coastal northern Scotland, according to the forecaster.

Winds will slowly ease from the west during Wednesday morning.

Regions and local authorities affected:

Aberdeenshire

Highlands & Eilean Siar

Eilean Siar

Orkney & Shetland

Orkney Islands

Strathclyde

Argyll and Bute

North Ayrshire

Yellow warnings were also issued in parts of: the east Midlands, the east of England, London and south-east England, north-east England, south-west England, Wales , the West Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber.

You can find more information about the weather warnings and advise about how to stay safe here .

The North Yorkshire fire and rescue service also said the incident in Morton-on-Swale was just before 5am on Monday and involved the rescue of five people and two dogs from two cars, one van and one HGV.

A spokesperson said:

Everyone, including the dogs, were brought to a place of safety. Highways closed the road to prevent further incidents.

He said other incidents attended by firefighters included a metal canopy damaged by high winds at the front of a cafe in Scarborough; a garage roof made unsafe by the storm, also in the seaside town; and a fallen tree blocking a road in Hawes.

The North Yorkshire fire and rescue service said the incident in Appersett on Sunday evening involved a Ford Mondeo that had become trapped in flood water after the nearby river overflowed.

A man and a woman in their 20s and a three-year-old girl were rescued from the car.

A number of people had to be rescued by firefighters from flooded roads in the Yorkshire Dales.

North Yorkshire fire and rescue service said responders were sent to Morton Bridge, Morton-on-Swale, in the early hours of Monday to help people from four trapped vehicles.

One woman who was rescued, Charlie Curry , told ITV Calendar News:

It was definitely a terrifying experience at the time. But I made it out alive and everyone’s all right. Just let’s see how the van’s doing.

This followed an incident in Appersett, Wensleydale, where crews came to the aid of a car stuck in water and took the occupants to a nearby pub.

More information to come…

Roger Mac Ginty posted this video of his dog on X, saying that Storm Isha has definitely reached ear-flapping conditions.

Waves break on the sea front in Blackpool.

Storm Jocelyn, forecast to arrive on Tuesday, will be the 10th named storm in five months, and only the second time in a UK storm season the letter J has been reached in the alphabet.

Storm seasons run from the start of September to the end of the following August. The first time the letter J was reached was in March 2016, with Storm Jake. The farthest a storm season has reached in the alphabet is the letter K, when Storm Katie was named, also in March 2016.

The Met Office began naming storms in 2015.

Last year’s storm season made it only as far as the letter B, with Storm Betty in August. By contrast, this year’s season has seen storms named in every month so far: Agnes in September 2023. Babet in October. Ciaran and Debi in November. Elin, Fergus and Gerrit in December and Henk, Isha and Jocelyn in January 2024.

It is rare, but not unheard of, for the UK to experience a sequence of storms across a handful of months.

There were 11 storms between November 2015 and March 2016, the first season in which storms were named, beginning with Abigail and ending with Katie.

And there were at least 12 major winter storms from mid-December 2013 to mid-February 2014, “the stormiest period of weather the UK has experienced for at least 20 years”, according Met Office records.

Not all of the alphabet is used when naming storms. The letters Q, U, X, Y and Z are omitted, in line with convention established by the US National Hurricane Center. It means the storm names still available for the current season are Kathleen, Lilian, Minnie, Nicholas, Olga, Piet, Regina, Stuart, Tamiko, Vincent and Walid.

We reported earlier that trees at the famous Dark Hedges had come down in the storm. Images are now emerging of the extent of the damage:

Workers continue their clear up as several trees in Northern Ireland made famous by the TV series Game Of Thrones have been damaged

Here are some of the latest images from the wires, showing the chaos caused by Storm Isha.

One of a number of trees in Northern Ireland made famous by the TV series Game Of Thrones that have been damaged and felled by Storm Isha at the Dark Hedges site in Co Antrim.

Here is some information about the rail disruption caused by Storm Isha from National Rail, particularly the impact on Southeastern services.

We're ending our coverage of Storms Isha and Jocelyn - but before we go, here is a quick recap of what to expect for the rest of the day and other key developments this morning.

Wind warnings: Yellow warnings for wind remain in place across Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and much of England until this afternoon.

Rail disruption: Services to and from Scotland remain suspended until at least noon, with passengers told not to attempt to travel north of Preston until then.

Power cuts: Some 2,400 properties remain without power in northern Scotland, according to Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks.

Nearly 100mph winds:  Gusts of 97mph were recorded in the village of Capel Curig, Wales, this morning.

By Brad Young, live reporter

Derek Lambie, 48, from Stirling, says he spent last night dodging bits falling off trees and litter "flying down the street at you at 70mph".

Houses and a primary school in his neighbourhood were left with involuntarily "open-plan gardens" after their fences were blown down, while river levels continued to rise, he added.

"I think we're all becoming used to this kind of weather that is constantly bringing warnings about wind and rain, but actually last night was the windiest that we've felt in quite some time," said Mr Lambie.

"At the moment it feels like when choosing dog walks, you have to pick whether you're going to go out in a gale-force wind, severe gale-force winds or extreme gale-force winds."

The frequency of the storms has left Mr Lambie concerned for what his children will have to contend with as Scotland's climate changes.

"It's every second or third day we're continually battered by this sort of weather," he said.

"It's difficult to tell the kids that it has changed really quite rapidly over the last 10 to 20 years, and in their lifetimes it's going to get worse again."

Mr Lambie continued: "Who knows what the next 10 to 20 years is going to bring for us all."

Some 2,400 properties are without power in Scotland, according to Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN).

SSEN said that the north of the country endured several hours of gale-force winds and its teams were working hard to reconnect its customers.

Power has been returned to approximately 2,200 properties, it said.

"Our network has held up well overnight given the strength of winds we have seen across western and northern Scotland, but our teams still face another day of challenging conditions as we work hard to reconnect all of our customers," said Andy Smith, operations director at SSEN Distribution.

Meanwhile, in England, Electricity North West said that "some of our customers are still being impacted" by the storms.

Edinburgh Waverley, usually a bustling train station at this time, has been left a ghost town.

Rail services to and from Scotland have been suspended until at least noon.

Pictures showed some passengers beginning a long wait for services to resume.

The family of an 84-year-old man who died during Storm Isha have said their hearts are broken as they paid tribute to him.

James Johnstone, from Grangemouth, was the front seat passenger in a car that struck a tree on the A905 Beancross Road in Grangemouth just before midnight on Sunday,

Police said Mr Johnstone, who was known as Jimmy, was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other occupants of the vehicle were not injured.

He was a "much loved and well-respected family man who left a lasting impression on all who had the privilege to have met him", said the family via Police Scotland.

"Our hearts are broken as a family. However, take great comfort in knowing that he has been reunited with his beloved wife Anne."

Police have appealed for witnesses to the incident.

Winds of almost 100mph have been recorded this morning.

The Met Office said Storm Jocelyn continues to bring "very strong" gusts across the UK, particularly in Scotland.

But the fastest was seen in the village of Capel Curig, Wales, with speeds of 97mph.

Gusts faster than 70mph were recorded in five other locations, with highs of 77mph in England and 74mph in Scotland.

  • Capel Curig, Wales, 97mph
  • Aberdaron, Wales, 79mph
  • Shap, England, 77mph
  • Needles Old Battery, England, 74mph
  • South Uist Range, Scotland, 74mph
  • Drumalbin, Scotland, 74mph

The Met Office has issued three weather warnings for wind today across the UK.

Here we look in detail at the amber and yellow alerts in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

YELLOW - WIND

Location:  Whole of Scotland and Northern Ireland, North West England, northern Wales and Yorkshire, as well as parts of North East England (Durham and Northumberland) and the Midlands (Derbyshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent, and Telford and Wrekin).

Begins:  4pm yesterday

Ends:  1pm 

Warning:  Strong winds may damage buildings, close roads and bring down trees. Recovery efforts off the back of Storm Isha will likely be hampered. Transport and power supply may be affected. In coastal areas, there is a chance of large waves and debris posing a danger to life.

Location: Wales, East and West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, North East England, as well as some areas of East England (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough), South West England (Bristol, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire) plus Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire.

Began: Midday yesterday

Warning: Strong winds will affect buses, trains, planes and ferries, with large waves expected on the coasts.

AMBER - WIND

A third, amber warning for wind has just expired, but the impacts are set to be felt across transport networks for at least the rest of the morning.

You can find the details below.

Warning: A spell of strong winds has a good chance of causing power cuts and affecting phone services. There will probably be some damage to buildings. Transport cancellations and road closures are likely. Large waves will likely pose a danger to life in coastal areas.

Location: Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, Orkney and Shetland, and Strathclyde

Began: 6pm yesterday

Ended: 8am today

The search for a person reported to be in the sea in South Wales has been suspended.

A coastguard helicopter and RNLI lifeboats began the operation near Porthcawl at 6pm yesterday.

A decision on further action would be made at first light, said HM Coastguard.

Rescue teams were sent from Porthcawl, Port Talbot, and Llantwit Major.

Porthcawl is a seaside town on the south coast of Wales, approximately 25 miles west of Cardiff.

Train operators have warned passengers to expect further transport disruption this morning.

Rail services to and from Scotland remain suspended until at least noon.

Martin Thomson, national operations manager for resilience at Transport Scotland, said: "Across the wider network, we can expect to see more delays and cancellations with ferries, flights and rail into Wednesday morning."

ScotRail said all lines will be checked before services restart, saying "it will be later on in the day before any trains can run".

Flooding, fallen trees and a shed roof blowing onto a high wall above a track were among the issues Network Rail Scotland said it had dealt with last night, adding it would be inspecting routes for damage from first light.

"It'll be done in many ways – teams on foot, in road-rail vehicles, freight locos and empty passenger trains. Our helicopter will be out too, as soon as winds ease," said NRS.

Avanti West Coast told passengers not to attempt to travel north of Preston until at least noon and warned journeys in North West England may take longer due to speed restrictions.

Hello and welcome back to our live coverage of Storm Jocelyn. 

We're expecting the fallout of the storm to continue, even as the harsh weather begins to ebb away.

The 10th named storm of the season has brought an amber warning for wind to parts of Scotland this morning, with much of the UK covered by a yellow alert into the afternoon. 

From 7pm last night, a near-complete shutdown of Scotland's rail network was ordered by ScotRail as parts of the UK saw winds of over 71mph.

Several flights were also cancelled at Dublin Airport. 

Rail lines and some roads will need to be inspected by authorities by daylight before services can resume in some parts of the UK, with fallen trees and other damage likely. 

At least one person suffered life-threatening injuries due to the storm yesterday, after a tree fell on a road in Bristol.

We'll be bringing you the latest updates throughout the day.

All train cancellations as Storm Isha batters UK and brings commuter chaos

Rail commuters will continue to face travel disruptions on Monday with cancellations and delays after Storm Isha tore through the UK bringing warnings of possible tornadoes and "danger-to-life".

Rush-hour trains have been mostly cancelled as the storm , with gusts up to 90mph, caused further delays and disruptions for rail, air, and sea travellers.

The Network Rail imposed a 50mph speed restriction across most routes to keep passengers and trains safe from falling trees and debris blown onto tracks. It stopped all freight and passenger services until Monday morning.

Scotland’s railway operator has cancelled all of its morning rush-hour trains and services may not begin running until later on Monday.

"Teams will begin recovery work during daylight, with each route being inspected for damage, flooding or potential safety issues before being able to safely reopen for passenger services to resume," the operator announced.

The London North Eastern Railway (LNER), which runs on the East Coast main line from London to and from northern Scotland, will not operate north of Newcastle until midday on Monday with more disruptions expected throughout the day. Customers with tickets dated 21 and 22 January can defer travel till 25 January, it said.

The East Midlands Railways said it was expecting to run a "normal service" on Monday but the line between Crewe and Stoke on Trent would be shut in the morning due to repairs to the track.

"If you were unable to travel last night, your ticket will be valid to travel today," it said.

Avanti West Coast warned rail passengers not to travel unless it was necessary. Trains to and from Glasgow and Edinburgh will start from 9am, it said.

"If you postponed your journey on Sunday 21 January, your original ticket will be valid for travel on Monday 22 or Tuesday 23 January. Alternatively, you can get a fee-free refund from your point of purchase," the operator said.

The TransPennine Express network said train services would remain disrupted until midday with more cancellations and delays to follow.

Merseyrail network cancelled the first trains on four lines for Monday as the severe weather is expected to affect services until mid-morning. First trains from New Brighton to Liverpool, ⁠West Kirby to Liverpool, ⁠Southport to Hunts Cross and Sandhills to Southpor remain cancelled.

"While mitigation plans are in place for the Merseyrail network, there is a possibility that further services could be affected," it warned.

Transport for Wales has cancelled all services between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales, and between Shrewsbury and Swansea on the Heart of Wales line till 9am on Monday.

Multiple Met Office weather warnings, including two amber wind alerts and a rare red warning for parts of northern Scotland, have been issued, while the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (Torro) said a tornado is “possible” in England and Wales.

The forecaster has warned people to watch out for damage to homes and buildings, falling trees, power cuts, flying debris, large waves and even some flooding.

Heavy downpours battered some places, with 26 flood warnings in place in England and 27 in Scotland.

Storm Isha is the ninth named storm to hit the UK since the season began in September.
