A driver narrowly escaped being hit by a roof falling from a property in a shocking new video.

The motorist dodged death or serious injury when the entire roof of a building was blown off and landed on a road during Storm Isha.

The car can be seen driving along Westgate Road in Belton, Lincolnshire before the roof comes flying off a building in the shocking CCTV footage.

The video has emerged as Storm Isha caused major disruption across the UK.

The clip was captured last night (January 21) on CCTV by Chris Woollas, 50, who said he thinks the driver 'doesn't know how lucky they are.'

They said: "It's an old building that's currently being renovated.

"There's lots of scaffolding on it, but it's just blown the roof off.

"I saw the footage and thought that the person in the car doesn't know how lucky they are.

"If they had been driving a little bit slower, then the roof could have gone straight through the windscreen."

The strongest winds for decades have been recorded in some parts of the country including 99mph at Brizlee Wood in Northumberland as well as gusts of 90mph at Capel Curig in Snowdonia on Sunday.

The destructive storm has led to the death of a pensioner and has left thousands of homes without power.

An 84-year-old man died during Storm Isha after the car he was a front seat passenger in crashed into a fallen tree in Grangemouth, Falkirk, Police Scotland said.

Transport services were also disrupted with roads closed, rail lines blocked and flights diverted, while dozens of schools were shut on Monday.
