WATCH | London’s Iconic O2 Arena Feels The Wrath Of Storm Eunice As A Large Section Of Its Roof Is Torn Apart

As storm Eunice continues to pummel large parts of the UK, some of London’s most iconic sites have started to become a victim of the 70+ mph winds.

In a video shared on Twitter (scroll down for footage), a large section of the O2’s roof can be seen in flapping around in the wind.

The footage was filmed by someone aboard a boat on the River Thames.

It is believed to be the first time in the arena’s history that so much damage has been caused to its roof during high winds.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

According to the ‘Fugees: the Score 25th Anniversary Tour’ was due to take place today at 18:30 hours but the event has now been cancelled.

The O2 arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the centre of The O2 entertainment complex on the Greenwich Peninsula in southeast London.

It opened in its present form in 2007.

It has the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom, behind the Manchester Arena, and in 2008 was the world’s busiest music arena.
