This dramatic footage shows the moment a plane battled against strong
winds to land almost sideways at Britain”s highest airport.

The Flybe plane can be seen swaying wildly from side to side at Leeds Bradford Airport as it was hit by strong gusts this afternoon.

The Dash 8 plane, arriving from Aberdeen, approaches the runway at an almost sideways angle as it lands at the airport with its wings tilted.

The skillful pilot manages to keep control of the plane and bring it in safely to land at the West Yorkshire airport – that is considered to be one of the most difficult airports to land at.

The gale force landing comes as 100mph winds struck the North of England today – causing travel problems and uprooted trees.

Trees have been ripped from the ground, trains cancelled and families left with no power as the the UK is lashed by 100mph winds.

Around 75,000 homes have been left without power power in the Scottish Highlands because of ferocious gales stirred up by an extra-powerful jet stream triggered by plunging temperatures in the United States hitting warmer air in the south.

The winds are so fierce that a a 30ft tree was torn from the ground.

North Yorkshire Police tweeted a picture of the massive tree, which fell in York.

Police in Inverness said that several roads and bridges, including the Skye Bridge and Dornoch Bridge, have been closed in northern Scotland.
