- While Denton Corker Marshall's Manchester justice centre is also hit

Another victim of the high winds has been Denton Corker Marshall's Manchester civil justice centre.

The building is made up of cantilevered boxes sitting on top of one another, but some of the boxes failed to stand up to the 99mph winds, losing their panelling.

One of the loose panels even struck a woman as she was walking past, causing both Gartside Street and Bridge Street in Manchester city centre to be closed off.

An eye witness said: 'The underside of the boxes was ripped off by the gales, with about six panels being lost.

'Unfortunately, one of the panels hit a lady on the head as she was walking by. I don't think she was seriously hurt though.'
