Storm Mathis leaves 700 properties without power in Cornwall

Strom Mathis has battered parts of Britain overnight as 70mph winds have ripped through southern England and Wales leaving hundreds homes without power.

The French-named brutal storm was expected to cause “structural damage to buildings”, and has seen almost 700 homes left without electricity.

Last night, the Met Office warned: “A deep area of low pressure is expected to move eastwards across southern Britain during Thursday evening and Friday morning, bringing spells of strong southerly winds, then a lull, followed by strong west or northwesterly winds.
