Shock for driver as gusts force vehicle off road in Staffordshire

High winds lifted a van off the road in the Staffordshire Peak District.

The gusts pinned the vehicle to a bank, lifting the wheels off the ground, near Leek on Wednesday.

Strong winds overnight led to disruption on roads across Staffordshire, with blown-down trees blocking several routes, particularly on the Moorlands.

More strong winds are forecast for Friday.
