Commuters are facing travel disruptions and parts of the UK have been put on high alert for flooding as the remnants of Storm Brendan continue to batter the UK.
Weather warnings remain in force across the country after winds of nearly 90mph caused disruption to transport across the country.
The winds forced airlines to divert flights scheduled to land at Gatwick, while also causing disruption to ferries and railways. 
A second low-pressure front brought further high winds to much of England and Wales on Tuesday, with the Environment Agency warning strong winds, high tides and large waves could lead to flooding.
The Environment Agency has now updated its high alert flood warnings to include 15 parts of the UK, while 122 places are being told flooding is possible.

The Met Office has issued four weather warnings across the UK, including two for strong winds in north-western Scotland and most of England and Wales which are in place until the end of Tuesday.
A warning for rain in the south-east of England remains in place until 9am on Wednesday, while one for snow and ice across central Scotland and the highlands was lifted by Tuesday afternoon.
Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon said on Tuesday that northern and western Scotland would continue to be hit with high winds of 60mph to 70mph from Storm Brendan.

However, he said a new low-pressure front would cause blustery conditions for England and Wales.
Mr Claydon said the high winds and rain could lead to unpleasant travelling conditions and cause disruption to roads, trains and ferries.
He added: We are looking at gusts of 40mph to 50mph with exposed coasts and the tops of hills seeing 60mph and maybe even up to 70mph.
With that, theres also going to be some rain, making conditions quite unpleasant.
Its certainly going to be unpleasant driving conditions and could lead to disruption across many travel networks.
Seven flights to Gatwick Airport were diverted to other locations across the UK overnight after gales in excess of 40mph struck the area on Monday.
Gatwick said two Wizz Air flights, four easyJet services and one Norwegian Air flight were diverted while one easyJet flight from Edinburgh was forced to land at Birmingham.
