The Golden Ball Street pub’s marquee was upturned from its usual place outside the front of the building.

Having been tipped upside down, it rested for a short time across the front of the building partially obscuring the pub’s signage and door.

A spokesman for The Woolpack Inn said: "We're fine. The wind has managed to get underneath the marquee and tear it up but we're fine."

The wooden garden benches and artificial grass turf seating area which are usually housed underneath the marquee are now sat out in the open. 

No damage has been reported and the pub is conducting business as usual.
