Full list of school closures as Storm Isha causes travel chaos across UK

Many schools have been closed today as the UK woke up to major travel disruption caused by Storm Isha overnight.

Winds of up to 99mph have batted the country, with a “danger-to-life” amber weather warning issued by the Met Office in place until 6am this morning.

The strong winds resulted in tens of thousands of homes without power, including 45,000 in Northern Ireland, 8,000 in north-west England, and 3,000 in Wales.

Travel was also disrupted with Network Rail cancelling all trains after 10pm. Scottish trains were cancelled after 7pm.
