But pictures show that homes and pubs in and around St Albans have been damaged by the bad weather.

At one house in Beningfield Drive, London Colney, a gable wall was destroyed leaving the roof interior exposed.

At the Colney Fox pub, photographer Craig Shepheard witnessed staff grappling with outdoor chairs and tables which were blown away from the front garden.
