The high winds have ripped part of the roof off Gorleston Baptist church.

There are reports that a strong gust lifted off the roof.

The building usually doubles as a foodbank on a Thursday and serves meals to vulnerable people but has had to be closed.

We have had to close the church hall, and foodbank. We were an hour away from serving meals to vulnerable people, so very very sad for everyone

– Michelle Holt, Gorleston Baptist Church
