STORM AILEEN -UK hit by its first named storm. But photos not as dramatic as Aileen’s cousins across the Atlantic…

Storm Aileen, is set to bring winds of up 75 miles per hour to parts of the UK this week, the Met Office said. Aileen is the first storm to be named since this season’s names were released last week, as part of the scheme by the Met Office and Met Eireann to raise awareness of extreme weather in the UK and Ireland.



So far the photos aren’t quite as dramatic as the storms hitting shores across the Atlantic thankfully. Though clearly, the first casualties of AIleen have been wheelie bins:

Since you’re here …

It may worry you that much of our mainstream press is increasingly reporting with a strong right-wing bias. Most of our media is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires with personal agendas.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with the mainstream 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative journalism.
