At least four people have been killed by falling trees and debris as Storm Eunice continues to batter the UK with winds of up to 122mph – causing widespread damage and travel chaos for millions across the country.

A man in his early 60s became the first known victim when he was killed by a falling tree in County Wexford in the Republic of Ireland while out working to clear the area.

The second victim, a man in his 20s, is believed to have been killed when a Mercedez-Benz Sprinter he was travelling in collided with a tree in the market town of Alton, Hampshire, this afternoon.

Hampshire Constabulary said the driver, also in his 20s, was taken to Southampton General Hospital with serious injuries, while officers investigated the ‘exact circumstances’ of the incident.
