Jersey is one area that’s feeling the full brunt of the storm’s assault on Britain, as huge hailstones fell in the early hours of this morning on Jersey.

She said: “Storm Ciaran hasn’t even really got started yet and we have hailstones like this breaking our windows in Trinity #stormciaran #jersey.”
