Dramatic footage has revealed how Storm Doris sent a vast torrent of water rushing over the Derwent Dam yesterday.

The incredible footage, sent in by Star reader Rob Bates, was captured as high winds and heavy rains battered the Derbyshire Peak District between Sheffield and Glossop.

Despite the spectacular sight at Derwent Dam, Storm Doris caused a number of problems for residents yesterday as gale-force wind and rain battered the country.

A passenger plane was forced to abort its landing at Doncaster Sheffield Airport while many train services were delayed or cancelled as a result of the weather conditions.

Record wind speeds of 71mph swept across the city as almost 900 homes homes in Dore were plunged into darkness after a power cut.

Fallen trees and flooding caused havoc on Sheffield's roads but that wasn't enough for one brave runner to bare all in the elements.
