A ROAD was closed after high winds left a garage in a dangerous state.
A 25ft square panel was ripped from the Sovereign service station at the crossroads of Lane Head Road, Penistone Road and Barnsley Road, Shepley, just before 2pm yesterday.
The ferocious winds left many more panels unsafe.
Diversions were put in place and the road remained closed until early this morning.
