Whipped up wave

, October 28, 2013

Waves crash against a lighthouse during storms that battered Britain and where a 14-year-old boy was swept away to sea at Newhaven in South East England on October 28. Britain's strongest storm in a decade battered southern regions on Monday, forcing hundreds of flight cancellations, cutting power lines and disrupting the travel plans of millions of commuters.

Police said rescuers were forced to call off a search for the boy late on Sunday due to the pounding waves, whipped up by the rising wind. Reuters/Luke MacGregor
