Mini twister in the west?

Out of a clear blue sky, a mini twister has been reported in the west of the Island.

It appeared while Dee McClure was seeing to her horse in a stable at Little London, above Cronk-y-Voddy.

She says conditions were very still, when suddenly a strong wind started.

A spokesman for the met office says its likely to have been caused by a big difference in the temperatures of the concrete in the yard and the surrounding countryside, which resulted in air rushing in to replace hot air that had risen up.
