DIY avalanche: Dunfermline men cause home snowslide

Two men in Fife have caused a mini-avalanche after trying to clear their gutters of ice to prevent any structural damage.

Naj Mohammed, who posted a video of the incident on YouTube, said the weight of the ice and snow was "causing the pipes to sag. This was us in the process of damage limitation."

Mr Mohammed filmed Stevie Barron trying to break some of the ice off a piece of guttering attached to a satellite cable when he set off the snowslide from the roof.
