Waterfall blown upwards by high winds

A video has emerged on youtube which shows a Derbyshire waterfall, called Kinder Downfall, blowing upwards as high winds from ex-Hurricane Gonzalo hit.

Storm-force winds battered the Peak District today as remnants of the hurricane moved across the UK.

Rod Kirkpatrick, who shared the video on YouTube, said the River Kinder was "stopped in its tracks" where it usually cascades 80 feet (24 metres) down the waterfall.

This was not the first time Kinder Downfall has defied gravity, but was one of the most spectacular examples of this phenomenon.
