A video posted to Twitter on Monday captured category 2 winds from the storm named Ophelia rattling and shaking a commercial aircraft as it landed at Dublin Airport on Monday.

As it heads over the wire fence and makes for the runway, the plane starts to tip dangerously to its left hand-side.

Both Ryanair and Easy Jet cancelled flights at Belfast International Airport, with more cancellations expected.

OPTIMISM is being expressed that the backlog of flights at Shannon caused by today's weather is about to ease.

Flights in Ireland and parts of the United Kingdom have been badly hit by remnants of Hurricane Ophelia.

A British Airways spokeswoman said the carrier has had "some reports of smells on board" but the aircraft continued to their destinations.
