Storm Ciara is causing monster winds of up to 60mph or more in some parts of Northamptonshire today (Sunday, February 9) as leisure outlets are closed and trees are down.

Met Office forcasters have issued a yellow warning for rain and an amber warning for wind, which are both set to end between 6pm and 9pm today.

Pictures taken across the county shows how the storm has today caused havoc.

Storm Ciara is the third named storm of the winter, following Storm Atiyah which hit the UK in December and Storm Brendan which brought wind and rain in mid-January.

The strongest gusts to hit Northamptonshire since local records began were clocked at 70mph on October 27, 2002.
