The UK Has Taken An Absolute Battering From Storm Doris

The UK Has Taken An Absolute Battering From Storm Doris

If there's one thing we absolutely love in the UK (other than getting upset over the price of Freddos) it's talking about the weather.

Usually, it's not really worth talking about, we have about 9 months of grey, two months of 'fuck this, I'm moving to Spain' and a few weeks of sunshine.

However, we're currently in the grips of Storm Doris which is causing destruction and disruption across the UK.

Doris has been officially called a 'weather bomb' by the MET Office now and is battering some places with winds of 94mph, there's been snow and rain and chaos as flights and rail journeys have been cancelled.

A spokesperson from the Met Office told TheLADbible: "Doris came across from the Atlantic, but luckily shouldn't be around for long.

"Doris is officially a 'weather bomb' because of the rapid deepening of pressure, or explosive cyclogenisis, it's been through."

The Met Office has extended its amber warning - it said that damage to structures, interruptions to power supplies and disruption to travel networks was likely and there is a danger of injury from flying debris.

On the plus side, 'my train has been cancelled' is a legit reason to give your boss if you don't fancy going outside today, and who can blame you?

Highways England has also issued a warning to avoid some stretches of road in Yorkshire, the Midlands and the East and North West.

People took to Twitter to share their best Storm Doris pics:

There are reports of lorries being overturned and trees crashing down, blocking roads.

But fear not, the spokesperson continued: "Doris is heading eastwards and by about 6pm it should be out in the North Sea. Places like Northern Ireland will have already noticed that the winds have dropped.

"We'll have a relatively calm day tomorrow, by comparison."
