    Storm Doris has arrived off the south coast
    of England and is battering Cornwall and will bring more gales and floods to
    the UK this weekend.
    As storm Doris takes aim for the UK some
    coastal areas are bracing themselves for winds of up to 100mph.

    Met Office has issued severe weather
    warnings but has not named the low pressure system moving across, they have
    issued 42 flood alerts.

    The Met Office forecast predicts: ‘Wet and
    windy weather edging northwards on Saturday. Further rain and strong winds
    possible in the far south on Sunday, then fine for a time before more rain
    later Monday.’
    A residential street in Hayle was lit with
    multiple explosions after power cables came down as gale-force winds struck
    Cornwall last night.

    At around 3am, the power lines began arcing
    spectacularly in Bodriggy Street. Blake Evans was awoken to the intense smell
    of burning and the bright flashing and crash of explosions just outside his
    bedroom window.
