After a tornado left a trail of destruction in north-west London, injuring six people and damaging more than 100 homes, a father-of-one has described the moment it struck.
Bashkim Babisi lives in Chamberlayne Road, Kensal Rise - one of the main roads affected by the twister - with his partner Paula Catalina, 33, and their five-year-old son Adriano.
The 36-year-old security worker says he was casually looking through some household bills when the freak weather event hit.
I was in my bedroom when I saw a strong, unusual light.
I opened the curtains wide and I could not believe what I was seeing - tables, chairs, books, bricks and other debris were swirling around my garden.
I even saw big umbrellas swirling around my garden.
In 16 years of living in London, I have never seen anything like this.
My house was actually shaking.
It was only because I watch a lot of films that I realised what it was.
Then all of the windows in my home shattered.
I went straight to my back door to try to get out of by home but when I opened the door I saw the twister and my door was blocked with debris.
It seemed to last only a minute - I did not have time to think.
Fortunately, Paula had gone to school with Adriano.
I am glad that we are all right.
When I finally walked outside, I saw houses in a worse state - debris everywhere.
Cars were damaged and the road was blocked with things.
I don't even know now whether our house is safe to go back to.
We have been staying in the church [police temporarily placed affected residents in Kensal Rise Methodist Church] but I don't know where my family will stay tonight.
We have only a few relatives here in London.
I never imagined something like this could happen in London.
I never want to witness something like that again.
