A Woman Has Died As A Result Of Storm Doris
A woman has died after sustaining a 'very serious head injury' as a result of Storm Doris.
The incident happened outside a Starbucks in Wolverhampton, with West Midlands Ambulance Service confirming that the woman had died at the scene at around 11.50am.
Storm Doris has swept through the UK over the past 24 hours, causing destruction and disruption throughout the country with winds of almost 100mph knocking over lorries and pulling down trees.
Flights and train journeys have been cancelled as well as several stretches of road being closed.
The storm, which blew in from the Atlantic, has been upgraded to a 'weather bomb' by the Met Office.
A spokesperson from the Met Office told LADbible: "Doris is officially a 'weather bomb' because of the rapid deepening of pressure, or explosive cyclogenisis, it's been through.
"They occur when the pressure inside a depression falls very rapidly resulting in severe weather."
