Remnants of Hurricane Ophelia to hit Edinburgh tonight
Winds of more than 55 miles per hour are expected
The leftovers of what was Hurricane Ophelia are due to hit Edinburgh this evening from 10pm.
The storm has taken the lives of two people already in Ireland and has produced gusts of wind as strong as 109 miles per hour, cancelling all train journeys in the country.
