UK storm batters Cardiff
Man hit on the head by falling street sign in Cardiff city centre
A pedestrian was struck by a sign this afternoon on Cardiff’s Westgate Street, outside the Millenium Stadium. It is thought the sign came down in heavy winds as the storm currently sweeping the UK reaches Cardiff.
Trees have also been brought down by high winds in the Heath and Whitchurch areas of Cardiff causing traffic delays.
As the storm sweeps across the country there are currently 42,000 homes in South Wales without power.
