Storm destroys home in Glasgow's Crowhill Street

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

In Glasgow's Crowhill Street one home was completely destroyed, leaving its residents in a state of shock.
