PETALING JAYA - Malaysians in Britain have not been spared in what is described as one of the worst storms to hit the island in many years.

Student Sharlyn J. Edmund, who is studying criminology at Aberystwyth University in Wales, said that the area was lashed with strong winds in the past few days.

The weather’s been pretty bad everywhere in the country. It’s scary,” she said yesterday.

Postgraduate student Shariha Roseley, 25, from the University of Leeds, said heavy rain had been falling in her area for two to three days.

“The weather was cold and windy when I travelled to Oxford a fortnight ago. It is certainly the worst (storm) I’ve seen for the past few years,” she said.

Ainaa Azhar, a Malaysian student based in Bath, said that she had to reschedule her plans due to disrupted train service in the morning.

“Rubbish bins and trees were blown away. I and other students have been advised not to travel too far at this time,” he added.

Rachel Tan Ju-Ai, 21, a mechanical engineering student at Imperial College London, said that trees had fallen down in some areas in London.
