Slept through it. Phone started ringing almost as soon as I got to work with people reporting they would struggle to return from leave for the night shift. Spent most of the day trying to juggle staff to cover night and following day shifts.
Returned home to the New Forest for the weekend and was saddened to see the devestation, The thing that really got me wasn't the uprooted trees but those whose trunks had just snapped under the force of the wind.
