Gale force winds, heavy rains and flooding have resulted in three deaths over the weekend in Britain with severe weather warnings in place for the next few days.

A 30-year-old as yet unnamed New Zealand woman was killed by a falling tree branch at London's Kew Gardens, while a mother and her baby are dead after high winds caused a car crash in Norfolk. The Norfolk victims died, when their car left the road near the village of Crimplesham, and collided with a tree during a burst of gale-force wind. The victims, believed to be from Eastern Europe, were travelling in a BMW, when their vehicle veered off the road. A man, also thought to be from Eastern Europe, is receiving treatment at Addenbrooke's Hospital. He is thought to be in a critical condition.

Almost 90 flood warnings have been issued across the UK, and forecasters are predicting gale force winds of 70 mph. The Environment Agency has urged "people stay safe, stay away from swollen rivers and not attempt to drive through floodwater."
