New figures from OFSTED claims more and more children in the south west are going to schools rated as 'good' or 'outstanding' schools
School inspectors are to publish their first-ever report on education standards in the South West later this morning.
The Ofsted report will say that too many children are not doing well enough despite the growing number of good or outstanding schools in the region.
It will also compare the performances of individual local authorities.
The South West had the biggest increase in unemployment in Britain between July and September.
Jobless figures saw an increase of 11,000 - from 162,000 to 173,000, putting the unemployment rate at 6.4%.
Nationally, unemployment has fallen with the number of people with jobs reaching an all time high of almost 30 million.
For many families the storm coincided with their half term holidays, one family had been camping in a tent along the Somerset coast when the worst of the weather hit.
Somerset Correspondent David Woodland sent this report from Brean.
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.
More than 7,000 homes have been without power in Bristol, Bath and parts of Somerset, as 75mph winds lashed our region.
Trees have been brought down by high winds, damaging properties and power cables, while a number of roads are still impassable because of floodwater.
Despite delays and disruption to some services, First Great Western say trains are not as affected as they had expected.
