This is terrifying

My daily commute takes me over the second severn crossing. In all the years I've been going over the estuary the bridge has never closed - not for gale force winds or impenetrable fog. It is a wonder of engineering.

However, today, falling ice from the gantries smashed the windscreens of five cars.

How no-one was killed is a mystery.

Take a look at this video from the BBC and also this video.

Terrifying yes... but a whole lot more effective than that bloke Offa and his dyke.
