Roof blown off apartment block in Slough as storm sweeps across UK

Witnesses have described the moment a large section of an apartment block's roof came crashing down onto Slough's high street.

Taxi driver Haris Baig, 30, said he was just metres away from being caught under the structure as he drove along the High Street on Tuesday evening.

Mr Baig said he did not see anyone injured, but heard that one person had broken their leg.

A large police cordon remains in place around the scene of the incident, with part of the metal roof still propped up against the apartment building.

A white van, with its hazard lights flashing, can also be seen underneath the metal structure.

Balconies on the top floor of the apartment block have been covered with yellow insulation, with much of it still being blown off the roof by strong winds.

Sebastian Rejnisz, 44, who lives in the affected building, said:
