'Should We Report It' - UK Man Unsure What to Do as Suspected Tornado Looms Over East London

Dozens of cars and homes were reported to have been damaged in East London and the surrounding areas on June 25 as an extreme weather event saw strong winds and heavy downpours, with reports of a “tornado” in Barking.

A Sky News report noted that no injuries were reported arising from the event.

Just over 40 miles away from Barking, in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, local resident Ben Tilson caught sight of the suspected tornado, posting the footage to Twitter, in which he can be heard saying “oh my god, I don’t know what we should do,” before adding, “should we report it?”

His tweet added, “I just nervously laughed until it changed course and dispersed.” Credit: Ben Tilson via Storyful
