After the snow-bearing Storm Darcy and the high winds of Storm Evert, the Met Office has unveiled this year's storm names.

The service has been naming storms in conjunction with their Irish counterparts, Met Éireann, since 2015. 

It's hoped that by giving the storms a name it will help the communication of severe weather through the media and government agencies.

One of the biggest storms to hit Suffolk in the past year was Storm Darcy which brought huge amounts of snow into the region in February.  

While Storm Evert brought high winds to the region in July.
