More from STORM ERIK overnight and for Saturday morning, clearing east.

The flight attempted to touch down on the runway, with the pilot fighting for control before electing to take off again rather than risk the landing.

After Storm Erik brought down trees and caused disruption to rail services, this is what forecasters have predicted is in store for Sheffield for the rest of the weekend.

Winds of up to 70mph are predicted for across the country, with the North of England set to be hit particularly hard. "The aircraft circled the airport and landed safely".

Samantha Loukes, network manager for Electricity North West, said: "Storm Erik has brought some severe gales to our region overnight and this morning, with 74mph winds recorded at St Bees in Cumbria".

It's going to be another very windy one.

On Friday morning a 50-year-old man died on the A384 in Buckfastleigh, Devon, and in Wales a van driver was killed after he collided with a fallen tree on the B4306 between Pontyberem and Llannon in west Wales. Weather warnings have been issued for the south coast of England, Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland.

The 2020 Olympic medals will be made out of what?
The target for bronze was met last June, while the organisers had more than 90% of the gold and 85% of the silver by October. Just 30% of gold and silver medals were made out of recycled material at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, according to BBC .


Storms on Friday caused trees to fall on vehicles across the country.

"We may see snow to low levels with nights below zero, although it's too early to say how low temperatures will go".

She said: "The south and east could become cold after next weekend, most likely with many parts dry, perhaps with some snow, mainly on hills".

"In the case of wind they will verbalise and practice manoeuvres such as a go around as well as setting acceptable and safe parameters for the day".
