Two killed as storms batter the UK

Severe weather warnings across many parts of the UK have been issued by the Met Office, with storm-force winds causing major disruption.

A man in his 50s died when a tree fell and crushed his van near Tunbridge Wells town centre.

Another man died in hospital after being airlifted from a small tanker which was hit by a large wave in the English Channel.

Helen Fawkes reports.
