It's blowing a ******* mental gale down here in Lanarkshire. Was just sitting checking my e-mail after work when I heard a radio squawking outside of the window. Peered out to see a couple of bobbies strapping police tape around my building and the adjacent bus stop. They were having a hard time and because I'm a nosy bastard, I went out to give them a hand. Turns out a whole fuckload of roofing and fencing has blown out from the houses to the right of my block, flew across our garden area and smashed into the houses of the shops over on the left hand side, taking out windows and bits of their roof. It's like a crash zone over there. Police are trying (unsuccessfully) to keep people away and are now letting residents of those houses take shelter in the pharmacy next to us.
