  • 6 Injured As Tornado Hits London

    Originally posted by BBC News

    Six people were injured when a tornado swept through a London street leaving a trail of destruction.

    Rooftops were ripped off and cars were badly damaged as the freak weather hit Kensal Rise in north-west London.

    One man suffered a serious head injury and five people with minor injuries were treated at the scene, London Ambulance Service said.

    A total of 11 fire crews were called to Chamberlayne Road. The road has been closed because of the debris.

    Witnesses said there was heavy rain and sleet, then debris flying through the air.

    Colin Brewer, who lives in nearby Trevelyan Gardens, said: "It was really, really incredible. All of a sudden I saw a swirl starting to form and then, it was amazing, but it then touched land.

    "I then saw clumps of all sorts of things flying into air.

    "It went from exciting to terrifying".

    Not something you see everyday in the UK. Hopefully the 6 people will recover.
