Flying trampoline brings down power cable and kills dog in 100mph gales as Britain braces for fresh storms

[ via Daily Mail ] 5 Jan

Just yesterday, Imposing Headlines had reported the damage due to recent fast gales that hit Britain. The gales were so strong that the water of a water fall was seen being blown upwards.

Now as the gales continue to batter the country, a dog has been reported killed in a bizarre accident during 100mph winds after a trampoline was blown into a power line, knocking it down and plunging it into a waterlogged back yard.

Gust lifted this trampoline from a garden two doors down and onto neighbour's roof
Rosie, a Border Collie, was in Dick Pritchard's back yard in Boderdern, near Holyhead, when she was electrocuted.
