Mike went on to post several snaps of his boy’s weekend away online, revealing he and a group of friends had enjoyed watching England play Scotland at rugby at Murrayfield yesterday.  

Meanwhile he also shared snaps as the men took part in a game of golf ahead of the storm’s arrival.

He added: ‘England got the win but let’s just move on as that is all you can say after that game.’ 

His journey home comes after wind warnings were put in place across the country as Storm Ciara battered Britain with gusts of 90mph ripping down trees, a crane, and even a pub. 

Hundreds of flights into and out of European airports were cancelled as Britain’s biggest storm in seven years swept into Scotland, with the rest of the UK being issued with several weather warnings.  

Further wintry weather is set to hit the UK on Monday and Tuesday, with the Met Office issuing a yellow warning for snow and ice in the North West, Yorkshire, and the Midlands.

Elsewhere around the country, flights are disrupted into and out of airports including the Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool hubs.
