There were blustery conditions on Wednesday as Storm Barbara brought gale-force winds and heavy showers.
Office workers and dog walkers were among those braving the weather as the Met Office issued a yellow warning across most parts of southern England. Up to two inches of rain was predicted in some areas.
Forecasters warned of road disruption and potential flooding from the West Midlands to the East of England and down to the South West.
But not everyone was disappointed, with some taking advantage of the windswept conditions.
