Loughborough Hit By Gale Force Winds

December 5, 2013 · Zoe Mumba

Winds of up to 140mph have hit the UK, with the north and Scotland being hit the hardest but Loughborough too has been impacted by the severe weather conditions which killed a lorry driver in Scotland.wind

The campus sprint bus is no longer running to engineering and is instead going only as far as the library after reports that part of a roof from the David Collett-Wolfson area has been blown off.

Other people have reported bins and the metal fencing around Towers being scattered, and some students living in town have reported having their fences blown down. A  tree on Radmoor road has seemingly been affected by the high winds as a large tree branch lays fallen next to the pavement.

Trains from Loughborough to London have also been delayed this afternoon, and earlier East Midlands trains warned there would be some “severe delays” to their services which comes after the company tweeted that there was a fallen tree on the line near Derby.

The Met office have predicted that the disruptive weather will last for up to 36 hours.
