STORMS which left 11 people dead in Britain over the weekend also crippled the Irish Republic, leaving thousands of home without light or heat.

Last night, an estimated 10,000 homes were still without power in some areas. Crews from Ireland's Electricity Supply Board worked through most of the night to restore power to 20,000 consumers and the remaining blacked- out areas were due to be reconnected by this morning.
