Are You Prepared for Storm Ophelia?

The Met Office has warned of "potential danger to life" as Hurricane Ophelia makes its way towards the UK

The Republic of Ireland's counterpart office, Met Eireann, issued a red wind warning across the country.

The hurricane will have weakened into a storm when it hits the UK on Monday, 30 years after the Great Storm of 1987.

Ophelia, on its way from the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean, is blowing winds of 90mph (145km/hour).

We want all our customers to stay safe out there. If you're on duty over the next few days, take extra care as it sounds like it's going to be a wild few days and nights.
