Meanwhile, in the South West:

SWNS

The region has been battered by gale force winds and massive waves. The weather has been so severe that the Shipping Forecast had to use the term "phenomenal" to describe the wave height, the highest rating they have.

The ground the railway line was resting on has washed away, you see, so the rails are now just suspended in mid-air.

So that's the main rail line to Plymouth and Cornwall, kind of more in the sea than it's supposed to be.
