A night-time "tornado" caused a trail of destruction when it struck coastal villages in Hampshire. People in Barton-on-Sea and Ashley were woken by howling winds and lashing rain in the early hours of Friday. Homes were damaged, fencing was flattened and a 6ft-high (1.8m) brick wall was brought down. Dave Thorne, from Barton, described the noise as "really, scarily loud". BBC Weather presenter Simon King said radar images supported the tornado claims. Mr Thorne said he heard an "almighty crash" and his window frames broke inward at about 04:00 GMT.
