Storm Dennis: two confirmed dead in sea as the UK gets battered

Two bodies have been recovered in Kent, as Storm Dennis batters the UK coast.

A teenager was out in Herne Bay earlier today and died after getting into the sea.

In a separate, second accident, a body was recovered off the coast of Margate, after an early morning distress call, the coastguard has confirmed.

A spokesman said: “At around 1pm, after many hours of searching, a body was sadly found in the water by the RNLI Margate lifeboat and has been brought to shore.”

Large parts of the UK are bracing for disruption as the storm approaches, bringing gusts of up to 70mph.

This is Britain’s second storm in the last two weeks, which could bring a month’s rainfall in one day, with some parts of the country are at risk of seeing up to 12cm.

Amber weather warnings remain in place across Southern Scotland, Northern England, Wales and parts of the South West, saying it could cause a danger to life.
