As previous storms in the UK and Ireland have shown, few objects are more susceptible to high winds than trampolines.

As gusts of up to 100mph were recorded during Storm Eleanor, people discovered trampolines in all sorts of places.

1. Here’s one that ended up on a road in Lincolnshire.

2. We applaud this lady’s positive spirit.

3. A community banded together to keep this trampoline grounded.

4. This man woke up to find someone else’s trampoline in his garden.

5. So did this lady.
