Poor Susie gets blown about on Castle Hill

There’s gale force winds, rain...so we sent our reporter Susie Beever to see what it was like up Castle Hill.

The results are just a little bit funny...

Boxing Day floods, one month on: special report

It has been one month since flooding caused chaos across Huddersfield and Calderdale.

The Boxing Day floods ruined homes, businesses, wreaked havoc on canals and waterways and badly damaged Elland’s historic bridge.

One month on from the flooding, we’ve taken a look at how affected areas are recovering and the efforts of communities and businesses to recover.

Not the best day to jet off on your jollies!

It's miserable in town

Are you stuck on the M62?

Delays expected until around 1pm - are you stuck in traffic? Tweet us @examiner

Obviously, let a passenger do the tweeting!

Oh dear

Meanwhile, in Wales

The remnants of storm Jonas, which blanketed much of the east coast of America in deep snow, have begun to sweep in from the Atlantic, prompting widespread weather and flood alerts.

It's a month today since the Boxing Day floods

Be careful on the roads

Heavy wind and rain is making driving conditions more hazardous - remember braking distances are longer in wet weather!
