The moment when a flying fence panel missed a car during a storm has been captured by the dash cam.
Meadow Driving School’s Sharon Carter said she and a student were shocked when they were suddenly surrounded by large pieces of debris during a lesson in Duston, Northampton, on Sunday afternoon.
She said: “It was also very loud, I asked my student to stop because there was a large piece of wood, possibly siding, coming towards us on the road and after we stopped the fence panel flew past. I have never experienced such extreme weather, either in a lesson or as a driver myself. “
The region was hit by heavy rain and winds of up to 80 mph (129 km / h) on Sunday and the Northamptonshire fire service said it received more than 130 calls for help.
