Storm Clodagh crashes in from the Atlantic, in pictures (20pics)

 Britain is receiving a battering as the newly-named Storm Clodagh crashes in from the Atlantic. Gusts of up to 70mph are expected around exposed coastal areas in the west on Sunday, with winds in inland areas reaching between 50-60mph, particularly in northern England. Warning of the potential for disruption due to the windy weather, the Met Office issued weather warnings covering the whole of England and Wales until 8pm. Here are a selection of the latest pictures from across the country.
