Wild winds wreak havoc in Kin­tyre

Pedes­tri­ans in Camp­bel­town’s Main Street had a lucky es­cape on Tues­day when a pane of glass fell from the top of a build­ing and crashed on to the pave­ment below. Shards of glass lit­tered the street but thank­fully none landed on any­one or any­thing, with po­lice of­fi­cers blam­ing the in­ci­dent on the blus­tery weather. A spokesper­son said: ‘There was no other ap­par­ent dan­ger­ous win­dows and an oc­cu­pier of one of the build­ings said they would in­form the owner of the build­ing con­cerned.’ Pedes­tri­ans bat­tling across the Es­planade did not have to con­tend with fly­ing panes of glass but they did have huge ocean waves crash­ing over the wall soak­ing them. Mo­torists also faced ob­sta­cles, with a num­ber of re­ported fallen trees across Kin­tyre, but most were dealt with quickly, caus­ing min­i­mal dis­rup­tion.

Waves crashed over the wall at the Es­planade and soaked pedes­tri­ans and cars. 50_c48weather03
