Storm Erik’s strong winds will bring another blustery day to the UK, before snow showers hit some parts.

Gusts of 70mph are expected on Saturday, as Erik batters much of the country for a second day.

The storm’s strongest recorded gust on Friday was 84 mph at Capel Curig, in Wales, the Met Office said.

Footage showed a British Airways plane forced to abandon its initial landing at Heathrow airport after strong winds put the aircraft off-balance seconds before it was about to touch down.

Also on Friday a tree fell on to a double-decker bus in Dorset, but no injuries were reported.
