A keen weather photographer was delighted when she caught this shot in Aylesbury of a developing tornado.
Melanie Clarke captured the funnel cloud as it was developing on Monday afternoon at 1.20pm. Of course, it is a rarity for such a tornado to ever touch down in the UK.
She said: “There had been storms all through the day. I just happened to look out my window and there it was towards Haydon Hill area. I just thought it was fascinating. You rarely see it around here.
“I do weather photography as a hobby and I just love anything to do with tornadoes.”
