A 12-year-old girl who went missing during Storm Ellen has sparked a major search operation.

Grace Clarke hasn't been seen since she left her house in the Hollingdean area of Brighton around 9pm on Friday.

This was the UK's third day experiencing the storm.

She is white, 5ft tall and has long dark hair.

Brighton Sergeant Simon Marchant said: "We, and her family, are enormously worried about Grace and would ask her, if she is reading this, to make contact with either us, her family or a responsible adult."

"There is a possibility she may be taking shelter from the wind and the rain either in wooded areas in the Varndean or Hollingbury areas, or potentially in outhouses or sheds in people's gardens.

"We are urging everyone to check their premises for signs of Grace and to keep an eye out for her."
