Greater Manchester Police have paid tribute to the officers and staff who worked through the night to help people in the storms.
Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan said:
"Yesterday was a very challenging day for everyone in Greater Manchester - including ourselves as police officers, other emergency services and not least the people living and working in Manchester who were caught up in the gale force winds that hit the region."
"I would [...] like to pay tribute to the officers and staff from all the emergency services who worked tirelessly throughout the evening"
"While the weather is expected to be better today, I would urge motorists in Manchester to take extra care while driving until the adverse conditions completely subside."
