Storm Brian latest: Shocking footage shows SHAKING plane struggle to land at UK airport

A plane has been filmed struggling to land upon arrival at Bristol Airport, as Storm Brian begins to batter Ireland, England and Wales.

In the shocking video, the pilot battled strong winds while the plane can been seen swaying side to side.

Footage posted on social media shows the plane struggle to stay steady as it comes into land at Bristol airport.

This comes as the second storm  of the season – following Ophelia last week – makes its way cross the UK. 

The weather bomb-triggered storm has seen flooding in Ireland, fierece waves lash parts of Britan, and winds up to 70mph hit southern and western regions. 

There are fears of flight cancellation and delays if the winds go up to 80mph.

However, the latest guidance from Bristol airport states there is “normal operation of flights, but check with your airline for further information”.

Last week, Storm Ophelia caused airlines to cancel hundreds of flights operating to and from Ireland, the worst affected area.

So far, seven flood warnings have been issued across England, urging “immediate action”.

The Environment Agency has 40 less serious “be prepared” flood alerts in place.

Across the country, National Rail warned the weather could affect train services, with emergency speed restrictions imposed on most of the routes in Wales.

According to weather producer Jo Robinson, the storm has been caused by a weather bomb of low pressure in the Atlantic Ocean. 

She told Sky News: “Much of Wales and southern and western England can expect gusts widely reaching 45 to 55mph, perhaps up to 70mph in coastal parts.

“Disruption to transport, power loss and damage to trees are all possible. There’ll be some rain too, but the main focus is on the strength of the winds.”

The Environment Agency’s national flood duty manager, Ben Lukey, has warned people against posing for photos during the storm.

He said: “We urge people to stay safe along the coast and warn against putting yourself in unnecessary danger by taking ‘storm selfies’ or driving through flood water – just 30cm is enough to move your car.”
