Storm Ophelia destroys stadium roof of Irish cup holders Cork City

Today marks the start of Anti Slavery week

Amber "be prepared" weather warnings covering Dumfries and Galloway, Lothian and Borders and Strathclyde warn of " potential for injuries and danger to life" from flying debris and high waves as wind gusts up to 80mph are expected.

Around 245,000 homes and businesses have been left without electricity in Ireland, along with 3,800 in Northern Ireland, 2,000 in Wales and 1,100 in Scotland.

Earlier on terrifying footage emerged of the roof being blown off Douglas Community School while the roof of a stand also collapsed at Turner's Cross.

The video shows the roof lifting up and down in the strong winds as a shocked onlooker films.

The gust was recorded by the Met Office on Monday evening as Derbyshire picked up the remnants of the tropical storm which blew in from the Atlantic.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says her country is ready to provide any support to Ireland if requested.

About 216,000 Irish customers were still without power this afternoon, with the worst damage in the southern part of the Republic.

The south-west coast is thought to have suffered the brunt of the damage, with Cork one of the worst-hit areas. "There will be trees on the ground, there will power lines down".

She said the ESB is set to call in crews from Northern Ireland and other parts of Britain to help carry out repairs.

"This storm is still very active and there are still very unsafe conditions in parts of the country".

Forecasters warn: "Very strong winds are forecast to affect most western and some central parts of the United Kingdom during Monday".
