    Bolton was battered by strong winds overnight, causing disruption and damage across the town.
  • The Met Office issued a "red" weather warning, meaning there is a risk to life.
  • Trees and signs have been blown over, and buildings have been damaged.
  • Commuters still face disruption after the M60, M62 and M6 were all affected by the storm.
  • Access for staff to the Royal Bolton Hospital has been hit this morning after the winds dislodged some bricks from a boiler building.
