Storm Arwen has hit Pocklington, making it an extremely busy night for the emergency services with major disruption caused.

Overnight, firefighters were called to numerous severe weather-related incidents.

Trees have been reportedly uprooted, with some coming over roads. There are also reports of a motorhome blown into a house.

Thankfully, Pocklington has seen no reported casualties as of yet.

The storm has brought heavy rain, snow, high winds, and a yellow wind weather warning from the Met Office to Pocklington.

People are being reminded to consider whether their journey is necessary as problems continue today.

York-based rail operator LNER have confirmed "owing to severe damage to the link from Storm Arwen, no trains will run north of Newcastle throughout the weekend. There will be significant disruption across our entire route. Please do not travel.". This message echos their advice from yesterday.

CrossCountry Trains have also echoed this call, with no alternatives or road transport options available to passengers who wish to travel north of Newcastle.

Some services also remained cancelled for Hull-based operator Hull Trains, who are already running an amended timetable due to engineering works. Passengers should check before they travel.

Local bus operator, East Yorkshire Buses, are also diverting some of their buses due to fallen trees. Passengers should check their Twitter for updates on how their journey may be affected.
