Storm Eunice Rips Apart The O2

The roof of London’s O2 has been ripped open as the capital is battered by the high winds of Storm Eunice.

Footage shared online shows the outer layers of the dome being pulled away by strong gusts of wind.

“In the last 45 minutes it started off as one small panel in the corner,” said Ben Hubbard, who filmed the video.

“It went right up to the centre and now the second, third and fourth panel are being completely shredded. I am not sure there is anything that can be done, this is serious damage.”

A wind gust of 122mph has been recorded on the Isle of Wight in what is thought to be a new record for England, the Met Office said.

The squall was reported at The Needles on the Isle of Wight as millions of Britons were urged to stay at home as Storm Eunice hit the UK.

Elsewhere, the weather has resulted in some awkward landing attempts at the UK’s biggest airport.
