Storm Dudley Even Forced Sheep To Hide In The Last Place You'd Expect

With winds reaching more than 70mph, it seems everyone was looking to get away from the weather.

Storm Dudley swept through the UK on Wednesday with winds so strong, even sheep had to seek cover.

In an extremely cute photo makes the rounds on Twitter on Thursday morning, five very woolly sheep can be seen hiding in a bus shelter.

People wasted no time in comparing it to the children’s cartoon Shaun The Sheep...

And who can blame them, especially as the Met Office issued an amber wind warning before the storm?

Wind gusts got up to 101mph on mountain tops while heavy rain hit trees, railway cables and power lines across Scotland, north England and Northern Ireland, leading to major train cancellations.

Thousands were left stranded without power in Cumbria, North Yorkshire and Lancashire the following morning.

Storm Eunice is expected to follow on Friday, while the Met Office has now issued an amber warning for the majority of England and Wales.

Scotland can expect high winds and snow, while the general public has been urged not to travel on Friday due to train speed restrictions and limited timetables.
