Burnham walker photographs 'mini tornado' forming over Hinkley Point

A seafront walker in Burnham-On-Sea has described the moment she saw a 'mini tornado' form in the skies over the estuary this week.

"My son and I were walking along Burnham seafront when we spotted the twister over by Hinkley Point," Julie Harris told "We could see the twister over the waters surface."

The swirling cloud formation occurred during a period of stormy weather this week and Julie took this photo with her mobile phone. The funnel-effect can be seen forming in the top left of her photo.

"It lasted around 2-3 minutes that we saw it and it made my son, Brandon's, day."
