The Met Office has announced a list of new storm names - all chosen by the public.

Together with its Irish equivalent Met Eireann, the national weather service recently announced a pilot project to name wind storms that have the potential to cause "substantial" impact in the UK or Ireland.

Derrick Ryall, head of the public weather service at the Met Office, said: "We have seen how naming storms elsewhere in the world raises awareness of severe weather before it strikes.”

The Met Office received thousands of responses by email and social media, but to maintain consistency with the US National Hurricane Centre naming convention, there are no names beginning with the letters Q, U, X, Y and Z.

Here's the final list of names for autumn and winter 2015/16:

A: Abigail

B: Barney

C: Clodagh

D: Desmond

E: Eva

F: Frank

G: Gertrude

H: Henry

I: Imogen

J: Jake

K: Katie

L: Lawrence

M: Mary

N: Nigel

O: Orla

P: Phil

R: Rhonda

S: Steve

T: Tegan

V: Vernon

W: Wendy
