Newark: Tornado-shaped funnel cloud spotted over Bottesford
A cloud in the shape of a tornado was pictured yesterday (Monday).
The striking images of the twister-like formation was captured from the A52 near Bottesford at 5.45pm by reader David York.
A funnel cloud is cone-shaped and extends from the base of a cloud towards the ground without actually reaching the surface.
Had it reached the ground it would have become a tornado.
Weak tornadoes and funnel clouds are not unusual sights in the UK during showery periods.
