See where ‘fierce’ Hurricane Lorenzo will hit in your area as warnings announced

Hurricane Lorenzo is predicted to hit stronger than expected as the 'ferocious' storm heads straight for the UK.

While parts of the country will see a brief respite today, strong winds and heavy rain will smash into the country towards the end of the week.

The Met Office has now issued 18 flood warnings and 91 alerts across England.

Hurricane Lorenzo is currently south west of The Azores, where it is expected to pass with 105mph winds today.

Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: "It could bring some very large swell by the end of the week to the UK as well as some heavy rainfall and we don't need more rainfall.

"Risk of some strong winds, gales in places, some heavy rainfall as well, and some big seas."

Many places across the UK have been hit with travel misery – expected to continue into the weekend.

National rail have warned trains could be cancelled or delayed up to an hour
