As Storm Ciara continues its devastating crusade over northern Europe, a terrifying video showing a child being blown down the street has appeared on Twitter.
The video of the incident that took place in Blackpool, a town on the Lancashire coast in northwest England, shows a toddler being dragged by strong winds over the street, unable to stay on his/her feet or at least grab something to resist the storm.

The storm, being dubbed "the storm of the century" by UK media, left more than 20,000 homes without power overnight. The roads have been blocked by police, while more than 180 flood warnings remain in place across the country.
