Storm Caroline will pose a "danger to life" when it batters northern parts of the United Kingdom on Thursday bringing gusts of up to 90mph, forecasters have warned.

People travelling by road, rail, air and ferry have been warned of potential delays and service cancellations.

About 2,000 Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks customers in the Western Isles and about 270 in Aberdeenshire were left without power but have since been reconnected.

The warning will be valid from 3am on Thursday morning until 8pm Thursday evening.

"The UK Met Office have named it Storm Caroline".

"There will be devastating winds in some parts. More broadly across Scotland there will be 60mph-70mph gusts, but in exposed areas we could see 90mph".

"Strong northwest winds may cause drifting of the snow in places with blizzard conditions possible at times across northern Scotland".

But while the Met Office has issued amber weather warnings and a "threat to life" amid flying debris, many have poked fun at the storm damage - or lack thereof - in their area.

A trampoline was blown on the railway line at Patterton in East Renfrewshire, and a gazebo at Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire.

The Forth Road Bridge and Tay Road Bridge are closed to double-decker buses while the Skye and Kessock bridges are closed to high-sided vehicles.

Emma said: "The northern edge of that - which Carlisle and north Cumbria is in - will expect to see snow, where the cold air meets the rain".

CNR International said 69 of the 159 staff on Ninian South, about 240 miles from Aberdeen, would be leaving the structure as a precaution.

"Looking into next week, there are further showers - some of which could be snow".

The Met Office yesterday issued an amber "be prepared" weather warning for northern Scotland today as the storm hit.

Elsewhere, aound two inches of snow is forecast to fall in across many other parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western England.
