This is the dramatic moment an enormous fuel tanker crashed into a road bridge near an airport during Japan's "strongest storm in 25 years" today.

The 2,591-tonne tanker was anchored but the winds in Osaka, Japan, were so fierce, the ship pounded into the structure.

It damaged the bridge but the tanker was empty and none of its 11 crew was injured, the coastguard said.

Nevertheless, the collision and the 135mph gusts caused travel chaos .

Runways at Kansai International Airport were flooded after the vicious weather, dubbed Typhoon Jebi, struck.
