The storm "Otto" caused disruption to air traffic in Denmark and also cut the power supply to thousands of people in Great Britain. The storm with strong winds will probably have consequences for take-offs and landings throughout the weekend, said Lars Lemche from Copenhagen Airport to the Danish news agency Ritzau. Passengers would probably have to be patient, he said.
In Scotland, 7,600 households were still without electricity on Saturday night because of "Otto". Trucks should be delivering food and drinks to the hardest-hit areas in the morning. A man was seriously injured when a tree fell in the northern English city of Sheffield on Friday. In Denmark, too, "Otto" tore out trees, railway lines were temporarily closed, and in southern Sweden around 2,000 households were temporarily without electricity.
However, the bridges over the Öresund - between Denmark and Sweden - and the Great Belt - between the Danish islands of Funen and Zealand - have now also been reopened for "wind-sensitive" vehicles.
