Pics: Storm Doris has wreaked just a little bit of havoc in Ireland today

Uprooted trees and wayward trampolines were spotted.

STORM DORIS HAS been wreaking havoc on parts of Ireland since last night, with the force of the gale knocking down trees and relocating quite a few trampolines.

The clean-up is underway as the storm retreats, though some homes are still without electricity.

Here’s Storm Doris in Ireland so far, in photos:

In the UK, people were seeing an even worse impact.

Tragically, the gales led to the death of a woman in Wolverhampton. She was struck by falling debris as she walked down a city street.
