And South West Trains are not planning to run trains before 8am, and have told people not to travel all day if possible. They are warning that a much reduced service will operate.

The Mayor of London's office has set up a web page called London Resilience offering advice on preparing for the storm, and you can also follow its up to the minute advice on Twitter at London_Prepared.

The Metropolitan Police Service is reminding Londoners to dial 101 when contacting police when it's not an emergency with expected increases in demand brought about by high winds.

The Met adds that calling 999 when it is not an emergency can reduce its effectiveness at dealing with genuine emergencies.
