Tornado hits Oxfordshire

A tornado was seen in parts of Oxfordshire on Monday during a storm which caused damage to trees and roof tiles.

Video of the tornado:



Large hailstones were also reported during the storm, which is thought to have started in Wiltshire and moved to Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Forecasters said the storm was caused by a supercell storm, where the air rotates very quickly, which is rarely seen in the UK.
