9yh June - Today's News: Norfolk Tornado

Plenty of rain in Evesham yesterday, though we missed most of the heavier downpours during the day. Someone down by the cricket pavilion also filmed a funnel cloud/possible tornado in the distance, somewhere west of Tunnel Hill (possible in vicinity of Throckmorton Airfield) at around 5.10pm. I was walking home from work around the same time .... and saw nothing! So far no other reports so if it did touch down likely to have been in a field. A few other funnels spotted around the country too. However, on Sunday afternoon some funnels certainly did touch down in East Anglia as a tornado leaves trail of destruction and twisters wreak havoc as they tear across Norfolk at 100mph.
