Gusts rip off part of Harland and Wolff's roof

By Michael McHugh

A sizeable chunk of a factory roof at one of Northern Ireland's major businesses was ripped off by Storm Eleanor. The mammoth mobile building at Harland and Wolff (H&W) Heavy Industries in east Belfast was not in use at the time.

The factory was intended for painting projects, a spokesman for the company said. H&W was once one of the world's leading shipbuilders. It built the Titanic, and currently focuses on offshore energy and steel fabrication.

The spokesman added the damage affected the outer skin of the roof.
