Wind tears giant scaffolding from office in Denmark

A Danish office worker watched in amazement yesterday as strong wind tore a large piece of scaffolding from his building in Copenhagen.

Martin Winholt filmed as the scaffolding took on the appearance of a giant flag flapping in the wind, before collapsing to ground.

Hurricane-force gusts associated with St. Jude crossed the North Sea to Denmark yesterday afternoon leaving a trail of destruction across the southern half of England and Wales.
