Waterspout off north Devon coast

Help

A waterspout, described as a tornado over water, has been filmed at Baggy Point in Devon by the crew of an RAF rescue helicopter from RMB Chivenor.

Waterspouts are more common in the tropics and sub tropics, but can occur in the UK when there is a large temperature variation between the sea and air.
