Destruction and power outages across the North East after Storm Malik and Corrie

Storm Malik brought high winds that battered the North East on Friday, with Brizlee Wood in Northumberland recording speeds of 93mph.

The following day Storm Corrie arrived, bringing more wintry conditions that lasted into Monday morning (January 31).

In South Church, County Durham, Peter Copeland returned home to find his car buried under a pile of bricks as the gable end of a row of houses fell following strong winds.

Peter was away for the weekend when he received a call from someone telling him his car was damaged.

Peter said "I asked if my car was badly damaged and was told there were a few bricks on it!

"It's amazing that nobody was injured. (If someone was in the car) It would've killed them."

Across Northumberland food and drink hubs have been set up by communities andorganisations to help.

Northern Powergrid is offering customers who remain without power compensation of £15 per person for every meal and to cover accommodation costs while they await reconnection.
