Battling to restore power after storms in Scotland

Clear-up operations are under way and engineers are working to reconnect power to thousands of homes cut off by violent storms which hit Scotland.

Gusts reached more than 100mph as the gales battered much of the country on Tuesday.

Buildings were damaged, trees blocked roads and rail lines, bridges were closed and flights were cancelled.
