A scaffolding structure outside a Southsea, Portsmouth, hotel has collapsed in high winds.
The building apparatus, which also uprooted a set of metal railings
, fell and crushed six parked cars that were situated outside The Royal Beach Hotel in St Helen's Parade.
Scaffolding was originally put up so that builders could carry out a re-painting job on the fifth floor of the south coast hotel but the volatile weather managed to tear it down at 08:00 BST yesterday (April 25th) morning.
The country is currently classed as being in a "drought" but the Environment Agency has issued over 50 flood warnings for parts of the south of England and west of Scotland.
Hampshire police confirmed that no-one had been injured during the collapse but cars have been damaged.
Driver Barry Fleming told the BBC: "Thank goodness nobody was killed, that's the main thing but I'm a bit upset about the car. I haven't been allowed to get under there to have a good look but I think it's a write-off."
