Branches of a palm tree were blown around by the wind before a small 'tornado' began to speed around the surface of the water, and two parasols were buffeted around and lifted into the air.

Holidaymaker Ian Henderson, 36, was on holiday with pals to celebrate a childhood friend's wedding and filmed the storm on his phone.
