Storm Gareth is set to bring up to 80mph winds over the next few days, but what is causing it?

A yellow weather warning is currently in place until Friday and the Met Office says the dramatic weather could bring severe disruption to the UK.

A Met Office spokesman said: "There will probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer and delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely."

The storm was caused by a deep area of low pressure, and is the third named storm this year after Storm Erik in February and Freya earlier this month.

The UK is expecting a huge amount of rain, however after the rain clears, the storm is expected to bring strong winds.

The Met Office has warned that with the strong winds will come a chance of damage to buildings, power cuts and travel problems.
