Deadly Storm Eleanor batters Europe

Winter storm Eleanor
Winter storm Eleanor has swept into most of northern Europe, including France and Germany after battering the UK, cutting power to tens of thousands of homes and affecting transport.

A skier died in the French Alps and 15 others were injured elsewhere in the country, four of them seriously.

A train was blown off its tracks in Switzerland, leaving several people with minor injuries. One person was hit by a falling tree in the Netherlands.

Wind gusts may reach 200km/h (124mph).
Storm Eleanor is the UK's fifth named storm of the season.
