Hello and welcome to our Storm Dennis live blog as heavy winds and rain continue to hit the UK.

A total of 30 warnings were in place in England, meaning flooding was expected, and 238 alerts cautioning that flooding is possible, according to the Environment Agency.

His body was found further along the river, Dyfed-Powys Police said on social media.

The Ministry of Defence deployed troops in West Yorkshire, northern England, which suffered badly from flooding caused by last weekend's Storm Ciara.

"Our armed forces are always ready to support local authorities and communities whenever they need it", Britain's Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said.

British Airways and easyJet confirmed they had grounded flights, with footage posted online showing a massive Airbus A380 jet being blown about as it attempted to land.

The Met Office said the highest wind gust recorded was 91 miles per hour (146 kph) at Aberdaron in north Wales on Saturday.

"Some communities have been cut-off..., but emergency service workers are working tirelessly to put measures in place to ensure the safety of residents", South Wales Police said in a statement.

Gwent Police said that residents of Skenfrith, Monmouthshire, were being advised to evacuate due to the flooding.

Rivers across Britain burst their banks and a number of severe flood warnings remained in place as authorities strove to get people to safety and to protect homes and businesses.

South Wales Police declared a "major incident" following multiple floods, landslides and evacuations.

The Met Office, Britain's meteorological service, only issues its highest red warning when it thinks the weather will be so unsafe there's a "risk to life" and that people must take immediate action to protect themselves. It was the first time a red warning has been sounded since December 2015.

Four hours later, the south Wales alert was downgraded to "amber", which still warns of significant impact from the weather and a "potential risk to life".

"South Wales will see a lot of rain fall before Dennis moves north later to Scotland and Northern Ireland", he said.

The storm also battered much of France, with some 60,000 people suffering power cuts in the northwest of the country. Meteo-France, the country's national weather service, said that the regions of Finistere and Morbihan in Britanny were put on orange alert for heavy rain and flooding.
