The tempest that tore across Britain yesterday and on Monday night, causing 11 deaths and extensive damage, might return by the weekend, weather forecasters warned yesterday. The London Weather Centre said the country is in the middle of a "very windy and unsettled weather system".

The violent storms have caused fatal road accidents, flash floods and have left fallen trees littering roads. Winds gusting up to 80mph were common place, with one of 90mph recorded at Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire.
