As winds gusting up to 80 mph hit parts of Scotland, a plane has been filmed taking off sideways from Sumburgh Airport in the Shetland Islands.

Hugh Harrop's footage shows the FlyBe service to Edinburgh being forced sideways as it built up speed for take-off.

The Northern and Western Isles of Scotland have been worst affected by the storm as it moves north, with many ferries and flights cancelled.
