A number of tornadoes have caused damage to some parts of Midlands and Wales where winds of up to 94mph have been recorded. Although some roads were blocked due to fallen trees and up to 20 caravans were overturned, police have confirmed that there had been no injuries.
The Met Office has issued a yellow severe weather warning of very strong winds moving eastwards across the UK. BBC Weather, on the other hand, said that the high winds were expected to clear to the east through the course of Thursday afternoon. It added that further strong winds and a brief but intense spell of rain are anticipated.
Meanwhile, the Grinshill Animal Rescue Centre near Shrewsbury reported "major damage". Posting photos on Facebook, Kate Aspinall said: "Dogs and cats are safe thank God. We are OK, a little wet and wind swept."
Richard Sherratt, from Preston Gubbals, north Shropshire, said: "It's chaos.
"I had a telephone call to say two of our trees had broken off, blown down, blocked the road and taken the electric wires with them at the same time.
"The road was completely blocked by branches and electricity cables."
