'Mini tornado' hits Glasgow car park

4 July 2014 Last updated at 14:58 BST

A mini "tornado" has been caught on camera swirling through a car park in the Gorbals area of Glasgow.

James Anderson spotted the twister whipping up dust and rubbish outside the Gorbals MOT garage on Bedford Street on Thursday.

He grabbed his phone and began filming as the column of dust swirled around.

The mini-twisters, or "dust devils", are caused by a rising column of hot air that begins to rotate as it stretches, throwing up debris.
