WATCH | Large Chunks Of Roof On Brand New £70m Hangar At RAF Brize Norton Get Ripped Off During Storm Eunice

A video has been shared on Twitter of the moment when large chunks of the roof of a hangar at RAF Brize Norton get blown off as Storm Eunice continues to pound large parts of the UK.

The new hanger cost around £70m to build but is now almost without a roof.

Royal Air Force Brize Norton or RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, about 75 mi west north-west of London, is the largest station of the Royal Air Force.

It is close to the village of Brize Norton, and the towns of Carterton and Witney.

Millions of people have been told to stay at home as one of the worst storms in decades hits the UK.

High winds have led to power cuts, flights cancelled, hundreds of schools shut, and a number of major bridges around the country closed.

The Met Office has issued red weather warnings – meaning there is a danger to life – covering much of southern and eastern England and south Wales.

One gust of 122 mph on the Isle of Wight set an interim record in England.
The gust was measured at The Needles, an exposed point at the western extremity of the island.
