Watch: Dramatic moment Storm Doris flips lorry over on Boyne Bridge in Ireland

Video has emerged of the moment gale force winds caused a lorry to flip over on the M1 motorway on the Boyne Bridge in the high winds of Storm Doris.

The incident happened on the northbound section of the road just after the Boyne Bride, Drogheda, Co Louth.

Despite the timestamp on the footage stating the year as 2000, it has been confirmed the dashcam footage is from Thursday.

Gardai confirmed emergency services attended the scene.

A spokesman said: "Gardai at Drogheda attended the scene of this incident when a truck coming across the Boyne Cable bridge, and the wind caught the trailer, flipping it onto its side.

"No other vehicles involved. Motorway closed for a number of hours in order to get the vehicle towed away. The driver suffered a minor injury.  No serious injuries."
