The Met Office is warning people not to put themselves at risk as Storm Ciara batters the south.

Wind speeds of 80mph have been recorded at the Needles on the Isle of Wight, and a number of trees have come down, blocking roads and railways.

In Kent, a trampoline blown onto train tracks in south London, has disrupted rail services from the South East to the capital.

Red Funnel Services to and from the Isle of Wight are currently suspended until at least 6pm this evening.

Along the south coast, viewers have been sending in videos of the extreme weather, including overtopping waves at Sandbanks in Dorset, and a stable block blown across a road in Oxfordshire.

The strong winds are predicted to continue today. Advice is to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary. Thankfully there have not been reports of any injuries.

Hundreds of people did brave the weather to watch the demolition of Didcot's remaining chimney.

Below is a taste of what the filming conditions were like!

As always, if it's safe to do so, please send up any pictures or video of how the weather is affecting you. Don't forget to tell us where you're from.
