Storm Erik hits Oldham bringing strong winds and heavy rain

Storm Erik hits Oldham bringing strong winds and heavy rain

According to flight tracking website FlightAware, the flight British Airways 276 that took off from Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Airport arrived at London Heathrow on Friday after a delay of 18 minutes.

The aborted landing took place during storm Erik, which battered the United Kingdom and Ireland with winds of up to 70mph.

Scott Bateman, chief executive of 9-Line Aviation and a retired member of the Royal Air Force, went on Twitter to explain the necessity of the manoeuvre, and why it was the safest option for the aircraft.

With winds now dying down, the Met Office has placed yellow weather warnings for ice in effect for the United Kingdom across Sunday night and into Monday.

It is also believed that two deaths have been caused by the storm so far - both of which occurred when the weather affected driving conditions.

The A20 near Dover was closed while a CCTV mast that was seen swaying in the wind above the road was repaired.

Gusts of 70mph are expected on Saturday, as Erik again batters much of the country.

"It's going to be another very windy one, particularly across northern England, Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern Wales", he said. There will be showers in western and northern areas, with frost and fog forming as winds slow down and southern England will see some rain, with patches of snow falling over hills.

On Sunday night, a yellow weather warning for snow will come into force in Scotland as bitter northerly winds send temperatures tumbling and bringing snow furries to parts. The wind warning along the south coast of England lapses on Friday evening but a wind warning extends over more of England into north Wales during Saturday.
