In the north of England, tens of thousands of homes were cut off. Utility Northern PowerGrid said 55,000 affected customers, mostly in the northern areas of Northumberland and County Durham. Several train connections in Scotland were disrupted. ScotRail encourages its customers to avoid travel whenever possible.
