About 400 homes in Shropshire are still without power after fierce winds hit the UK three days ago.

Scottish Power said it had responded to 1,000 faults in two days across Mid and North Wales, north Shropshire and Cheshire, equivalent to a year's call outs.

It says about 3,400 homes in those areas are without power.

Scottish Power says it will reimburse £10 to affected customers for each hot meal they have to buy.

The Environment Agency is warning drivers of standing water on many roads in the county.

Water levels are rising again on the River Vyrnwy at Maesbrook, where a flood warning has been issued. It currently stands at about 1m (3ft 3in).

The river level at Welsh Bridge is 3.12m (10ft 2in) and has dropped from a high of just under 5m (16ft 4in).
