This is amazing, been a few crazy days here weatherwise, luckily no one was hurt. Will be interesting to see if anyone in the surrounding area got any footage of this extreme event or the possible tornado before or after.

I did say I didn't need to travel 4000 miles to see a tornado  :)m Let's hope someone in the area had a camera/video handy but if they did we'd have probably seen the footage by now. Might have been a different story had it hit the cow shed too.

Here's the BBC video interview with the farmer who escaped the tornado, note he says he saw the tornado moving across the field..sounds like the real deal for sure  Smiley

Amazing stuff thatís certainly got some energy to lift the roof timbers and cause that much damage, shame about the Rover 75 I bet he wished he never parked there, thankfully no one was injured.
