Helen Chivers from the Met Office has told ITV News Westcountry that it was difficult to predict the path of the storm, but that they had a good idea of where it would hit last week.

She said: "Yesterday we were really confident it was going to come in across the Severn Estuary, run up through the Bristol Channel, go over Bristol, and then hurtle out across the Midlands and into the North Sea and that's exactly what it did last night."

A family at the Holiday Resort Unity Campsite in Brean got caught out in the storm last night when the worst of the weather hit their tent.

The only family staying in a tent at the site, mother Kim Symons said they had been camping for years, and her husband was a professional.

"It was quite scary at one point," she said, "we just sort of had to get on and do what we needed to do to get the kids out, save what we could.

"It was quite scary for the children, they were woken in the night with gales bustling against the sides of the tent," she added.
