An Airbus A320 was forced to abort landing at Manchester airport after being hit by a strong crosswind. The failed landing was captured on video, you can watch the video below. A combination of gale forced wind and heavy rain caused the airbus to seesaw and lurch violently seconds before landing.

According to photographer Simon Whittaker who filmed the video "'The weather was dreadful and treacherous at the airport. It was pouring with rain. I would say there were around 10 aircraft which attempted to land but pulled up on approach...It would have been scary for the passengers as it was all over the place in the air."
