The Humber Bridge had to close to all traffic for the first time in 20 years. Helen Steel reports.
Lorries were blown over, trees uprooted and train passengers stranded as winds of up to 92mph battered Yorkshire.

Two 30ft strips of corrugated iron blew across this building, hitting a bollard and lampposts in its wake. Andrew Foster, the associate head teacher said had the incident happened earlier, students could have been killed.
The school was closed today and looks likely to be closed tomorrow as workmen repair the damage.
