Numerous Hunts Post readers have sent in pictures of a tornados that hit Huntingdonshire yesterday (Thursday).

The first was seen at about 2.30pm by workers at Elstree Light and Power, based at Alconbury Weald, that was in the Brampton area and was followed quickly by a second towards Sawtry.

Experts at the Met Office class a tornado as a funnel cloud that touches the ground.

Catherine Parkinson tweeted The Hunts Post with a picture of a funnel cloud near the Brampton Interchange.

Craig Timbrell, of Stukeley Meadows, also captured a tornado at Alconbury Weald, with Katrina Lilly, Josh Mayes and Martin Amos snapping the weather phenomenon.
