A tornado has swept through a Lincolnshire village, tearing off part of the church roof.
The church roof was badly damaged in the storm
The whirlwind struck Moulton, near Spalding, on Thursday at tea-time.
Lincs Police said parts of the village had to be cordoned off as the damage was assessed. It was witnessed by MP John Hayes who lives in the village.
He said: "It was an extraordinary scene. People who have lived here all of their lives said they have never seen anything like it."
The South Holland and The Deepings MP added: "It tore the roof off part of the church and ripped up all kinds of trees."
Resident Carolyn Noble said: "Huge trees have been uprooted and the church roof has been ripped off like a sardine can."
