Defying gravity: Hurricane winds push waterfall backwards

EVER seen a waterfall defy gravity and go up, not down?

Now you have!

Ex-Hurricane Ophelia delivered more than just widespread damage and disruption to the British Isles when it hit this week with the storm's trailing winds causing this freak of nature in Cumbria.

The powerful winds were so strong they stopped a small waterfall off the Mallerstang Edge in mid-air, blowing the water right back from whence it came.

Footage of the phenomenon was shared on Instagram by Jonty Wilson, aka the Nature Man, and has been viewed more than 61,000 times.
