Man called Storm Denniss trolled as UK hit by extreme weather

A British man called Storm Denniss has been inundated by messages from complaining about this weekend's weather.

The Met Office has warned Storm Dennis will bring a month of rainfall to some parts of the UK in just 24 hours this weekend.
