Storm Erik meets Leeds Bradford Airport and forces the BA plan to cancel the landing

This BA aircraft was struck by strong crosswinds from Storm Erik when it made its final approach to Leeds Bradford Airport on Saturday.

The Airbus A319 landed, but then landed again in the air and forced the pilots to a "go-around" and another attempt to land the plane.

"Gusts of up to 50 knots (60MPH) were recorded across the runway, making these crosswind conditions very challenging for the pilots," the filmer said.
