Storm Ciara kills at least seven in Europe

At least seven people have died across Europe as Storm Ciara moves east, shutting down transport and leaving hundreds of thousands without power.

High winds in Poland ripped the roof off a ski rental shop, killing a woman and her two daughters. Their father was injured. One man died after his boat capsized in southern Sweden. One other person on board remains missing. Two people were killed in their cars - one in Germany and one in Slovenia.

Storm Ciara caused extensive damage. After first sweeping across Ireland and the UK on Sunday, the storm thrashed the north coast of mainland Europe.
