Groups of brave Brits still managed to get themselves out on the town and into pubs and bars despite the 100mph winds from Storm Dudley.

The Met Office issued a "danger to life" weather warning over the storm, but that didn't stop party-seeking punters from the streets in true British style.

The UK is set to face strong winds with both Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice hitting the country in a three-day barrage of bad weather and high speed gales.

Students in Nottingham appeared to have little concern for the cold blasts and predicted snow as they trooped out for a night on the town, The Mirror reports.

Some partied on in fancy dress while others stripped down to just their swimming trunks in weather that The Met Office slapped an amber warning onto.

The strong winds from central Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland and northern England above Hull were all given the amber warning, with yellow warnings attributed to places as far south as Birmingham.

With Storm Dudley battering the Brits, London North East Railway (LNER) have warned customers to travel with caution, saying that journeys between York and Leeds and London King's Cross on Friday could be disrupted or damaged.

The train service said those with Friday tickets can seek a refund or travel on the Thursday, with snow and ice warnings also in place in northern parts of Scotland.

Members of the public shared images and videos of the storm battering coastal areas, fallen trees and torrential rain.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: "There's obviously been a generally blustery picture across the country with a combination of rain and hill snow in the north.

"Some areas have seen severe gusts of up to 81mph so it's been a very windy day but that will start to slowly ease as we go into tomorrow.

"A new yellow warning of snow and ice has been issued for northern parts of Scotland and is expected to last into Thursday morning which could create some dangerous conditions on roads and paths."
