Stormy weather is expected to continue across England and Wales this week while parts of Scotland have been issued snowfall warnings.

Strong winds brought down trees and power lines on Monday night as gusts reached 110 km/h in southern England.

The UK Met Office warned that snow could fall on higher ground in parts of central and northern Britain.

The unsettled weather follows storms last week which left thousands of homes without electricity and led to widespread school closures.
