Watch: overturned lorry due to strong winds on the Woodhead Pass

This dashcam footage was taken by 40-year-old Paul Howard from Stalybridge at just before10.00am this morning.

Paul, who was driving down the Woodhead Pass on his way to Immingham at the time, says that another lorry had overturned 200m previous but his camera didn't catch that one.

It's not believed anyone was seriously injured.
