A video taken from inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has captured the roof pulsating up and down as a result of strong winds brought by Storm Eunice.
The storm arrived in the United Kingdom on Friday causing widespread travel chaos while warnings of risk to life were issued across the country.
Wind speeds are said to have reached top to 80mph in London and Tottenham’s £1 billion stadium was seen experiencing the full force of the weather.
Channel 4 News reporter Paul McNamara captured a stunning video of the arena’s roof moving up and down slightly as the wind blew against it.
However, there should not be any concern over the movement, with the stadium’s roof designed to withstand harsh weather conditions to prevent damage as a result of the lack of supporting uprights.
The roof of the @SpursOfficial football ground is currently pulsating up and down in the wind!

Tottenham won’t be playing at home any time soon, with the club set to embark on a run of four consecutive away games starting with a trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City on Saturday.

Storm Eunice is the stadium’s first real test against the elements and it is quite impressive and almost a bit scary to see how the engineering is being put through its paces. The stadium has been designed so well that it was always going to be very equipped to deal with conditions like we have seen.
