STORM DAMAGE ... the house in Victoria Road, South Shields.

GALE force winds ripped a roof off a house in South Tyneside this morning

At 9am today, residents living in Victoria Road, South Shields, heard a load bang before a flat roof was torn from one of the street’s maisonettes.

Debris was strewn across the road as the resident, who was inside at the time, called for help.

A neighbour said: “It’s a small miracle nobody was hurt.

“This street has a very busy thoroughfare, there’s always people walking along it.

“We just heard a loud bang and saw the roof flying past.”
