Work's continuing to restore power to around one thousand homes in Cumbria after Thursday night's storms.
Fallen trees damaged power cables and disrupted roads, rail and ferry services across the North West.
24,000 homes in the region were left without power.
Supplies to most have now been restored but Electricity North West says its engineers are working hard to connect the remaining properties.
"Yesterday conditions made it difficult for engineers to access sites due to trees blocking roads, and the wind also prevented linesmen in some areas from climbing poles to restore supplies.We've drafted in extra engineers to help clear the trees and debris to ensure we restore power as soon as possible."
