Here in the UK we've had really strong winds today and I was mystified by what a driver had told me,
I work in a fairly big city called Leeds and our driver told me that a section of Leeds was closed off due to a building that creates a wind tunnel
The building is called Bridgewater place, and the wind around the building can be so severe people sometimes struggle to walk past it, railings had to
be installed to help people hold on in high winds, its caused approx 25 car accidents, resulting in the death of a pedestrian when a lorry was blow
over outside the building in 2011. see links below
Can anyone explain to me in laymans terms how this happens?
Also, surely the developers of the building should have known this was going to happen?
any ideas would be great
