Wild Scene in English Village as 'Freak' Wind Flips Caravan

Locals in a Staffordshire village were left surveying the “carnage and destruction” as some “freak” winds suddenly tore through early on April 15, toppling a caravan and damaging properties and cars.

Footage here was captured by a home security camera in Knutton, and shows the caravan being flipped at around 6:30 am by a strong squall, or possible mini tornado.

Steven Lee Hemmings, whose father’s security camera was recording, told Storyful there was “carnage and destruction” along the street after the “freak weather event”.
