The aborted landing took place during storm Erik, which battered the United Kingdom and Ireland with winds of up to 70mph.

Samantha Loukes, network manager for Electricity North West, said: "Storm Erik has brought some severe gales to our region overnight and this morning, with 74mph winds recorded at St Bees in Cumbria".

"However, further north, another weather system is affecting parts of northern Scotland and Northern Ireland, rain and hill snow here".

Saturday will start windy with further scattered showers.
