A torndado is believed to have been the cause of a trail of destruction that was left in Retford during stormy conditions this afternoon (Sunday).

TV aerials, chimneys, roof tiles, and a lamp post were brought down during the freak storm, in the London Road area of the town.

A Met Office forecaster was unable to confirm that a twister had hit Retford, but added that conditions were right for spawning tornadoes.
