Did you see a tornado near Stamford?

Have your say

A MAN is keen to hear from people who may have seen a tornado.

Matt Knighton’s parents were driving into Stamford from the A1 northbound onto the A606 at about 5.40pm on Wednesday when they saw what they thought was a tornado or a funnel cloud in the sky to the north east of Empingham.

Mr Knighton got in touch with the Mercury to see if anyone else had seen the cloud. He wants to pass on any eyewitness accounts or photos to weather spotters at Skywarn UK to help them compile a report.

If you saw the funnel cloud, e-mail Mr Knighton at m.knighton.mjk@googlemail.com.
