A RESIDENT was surprised to discover a greenhouse had blown onto her roof as Storm Jocelyn swept in.

Tee Murdoch, of Leswell Street, Kidderminster, suddenly heard “banging” sounds yesterday evening (Tuesday, January 23) and started to investigate the cause. 

She said: “With the wind being so high I started hearing banging. I thought it was next door moving something. We found out it was coming from the ceiling”.

She looked out of a window and saw a metal frame on her roof, and thought it was a road sign at first.

The 25-year-old added: “I went out into the road and looked up and it was a greenhouse. Of all the things that could have been up there, that was the least expected one”.

“It just lifted up quite high and got caught on my chimney. The last thing I expected was a greenhouse on my roof”.

She found out that the greenhouse belongs to a resident on nearby Leswell Lane, whose garden backs onto Tee’s home.

The yellow weather warning for wind, which came into force at 4pm on Tuesday, remains in place today.

Issued by the Met Office the warning says: "Strong winds are expected in association with Storm Jocelyn, leading to possible disruption to travel and utilities.

- Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible

- Some roads and bridges may close, often blocked by fallen trees and other debris.

- Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

- Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, could happen

- Any remaining recovery efforts off the back of Storm Isha are likely to be hampered.

The warning is in place until 3pm.
