When did Storm Callum hit the UK, what damage did it do and where is it now?

But how long will Callum stick around and what's the latest forecast? Here's what we know so far.

When did Storm Callum hit the UK?

The third named storm of the year hit Britain on the morning of Friday, October 12.

Winds of up to 76mph and torrential rain left more than 1,000 homes without power.

Dozens of flights were cancelled and a number of schools were scheduled to close as Callum barrelled up the UK coast.

The storm passed through South West England, Wales and North West England, with the worst winds recorded on the Isles of Scilly.

Gales of around 60mph were recorded in Camborne in Cornwall and Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire.

The Met Office issued a 36-hour warning yellow warning for wind and rain, warning that heavy rainfall could pose a risk to life.

Yellow weather warnings are in place until midnight in the rest of Wales, large parts of North England and South Scotland.

What is the latest forecast?

An amber warning for rain remains in place for parts of south Wales until 6pm, with further flooding and power cuts likely.

A yellow warning covers much of the rest of Wales, as well as parts of Scotland and the north west and south east of England.

Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts said: "There will be more wet and windy weather for similar parts of the country – predominantly western areas – which could cause more flooding.

"The east and south east of England will see the best of the drier and brighter weather, where it will be even warmer than yesterday and could reach 25C – way above average for the time of the year."

The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for parts of the Dorset coast, as well as 58 flood alerts across England, while Natural Resources Wales has 28 flood warnings and 39 flood alerts in place.
