UK man denied drink of water by Storm Gareth while hiking

This is the hilarious moment a man attempts to have a drink from a water bottle while Storm Gareth rages around him this morning (March 13).

The video shot in Wrekin, Shropshire shows the ferocity of the most recent stormy weather system dubbed "Storm Gareth".

The Met Office stated Storm Gareth will subside at the end of this week.

The filmer said: "During Storm Gareth, I thought I'd go where the winds were strongest, up my local hill, The Wrekin in Shropshire, then decided to try and have a drink, gales forbid this."
