A man has made a lucky escape after almost being crushed by a brick wall ripped off a building by huge winds in London, while gales of up to 65mph swept through much of the UK.

Footage of the man's brush with death showed him walking past the Stokey Vintage Cafe in east London, moments before dozens of bricks smashed onto the ground behind him.

The video, which was recorded on CCTV in Stoke Newington and posted to Facebook by Alexandra Şöhret Marie Hamit, has been viewed almost 60,000 times.

London Fire Brigade, who attended the incident, confirmed they were called to Stoke Newington around 10:20am on Sunday, where they used an aerial ladder to clear the debris.

They say no people were involved and they left the area at 12:02pm, as gales and snow disrupted many parts of Britain, with some police forces reporting closed roads and others saying they had been called to a number of fallen trees.
