A photographer was lucky enough to capture this amazing picture of a tornado which formed off the Cornish coast in bad weather.
The huge twister was spotted off Bossiney Bay, in Tintagel, North Cornwall, by photographer Avian Sandercock, 43, at 7.30pm on Tuesday.
He said the funnel cloud whirled around the coastline for ten minutes - heading towards a holiday park before disappearing.
Mr Sandercock said: 'I couldn't believe my eyes. It was incredible and the sky was strange.
'I've never seen anything like that before. I don't think I was scared, just astonished. I grabbed my camera from the house and rushed out to see it.
'When it started to fade I drove down to see if I could catch it. I fancy myself as a bit of a mini-tornado chaser.'
Sarah Holland, from the Met Office, said the 'Twister of Tintagel' was actually a rare funnel cloud that would be called a waterspout if it touched the sea.
She said: 'The weather conditions required for the formation of a funnel cloud usually have to be showery, so a day when heavy showers or thunderstorms occur.
'Funnel clouds are caused by the updraughts and downdraughts that can occur within deep shower clouds called cumulonimbus clouds.
'Certain conditions can lead to the rotation of the cloud at its base and sometimes a funnel cloud appears.
'Funnel clouds can occur if the right conditions are in place and although they’re not a sight you see very often, they do happen from time to time.
'Tornadoes aren't that common, but they are a part of the UK climate; between 30 and 40 are reported on average each year.'
