A HUGE 'twister' was spotted in the skies over Dorset this morning.

Sally Tyler spotted the funnel cloud travel up from the Channel and work its way inland.

It disappeared into the rest of the clouds at Ridgeway Hill, Weymouth. 

She said she watched it sweep across the landscape. She said: "It was a bit unusual. I have never seen one coming in land.

"It was huge. When it was travelling towards Hardy's Monument it was quite big in size.

"It was changing constantly as it went along - it was rising and falling."

Lorna Strong took a picture of the cloud as it travelled over Upwey.

She said: “I took them from chapel lane, looking towards Weymouth at about 7.30am. I have seen one once before a few years ago, from Upwey but not as good as this one.”
