Extreme weather: mini tornado and Storm Gerrit do damage in UK

Around a hundred homes have been damaged, including some with their roofs blown off, after a mini tornado ripped through Greater Manchester.

Police declared a major incident over the ‘risk to public safety’.

Elsewhere Storm Gerrit has left thousands of homes in Scotland without power, while railway services were suspended and roads blocked by fallen trees and debris.
