Warehouse roof

Out for a days shopping when I noticed something in the corner of my eye flying in the air, not sure what, plastic, sheeting, paper? but I did see these chaps on a warehouse roof. 

The weather was not particularly bad, but gusty enough to blow objects of the roof, I do not no if the chaps were close enough to the edge to be blown off or if the wind was strong enough to blow them off . What I do know is that it was strong enough to blow an object off the roof near a very busy supermarket and adjacent to two main roads.
