A freak tornado has been spotted off the west coast of England amid 24 hours of bizarre weather conditions.
The looming twister was pictured towering over rooftops in the tiny village of Caton by a stunned photographer in Morecambe, Lancashire.
The dark funnel-shaped cloud appeared on the backdrop of a grey, stormy sky sparked by Hurricane Ophelia.
"Tornado alert - an image of what looks like a twister taken over Caton," the Twitter account Morecambe Bay posted.
The picture was uploaded after a day of unusual weather conditions.

Dubbed the 'hurricane sun', bizarre glowing red, orange and yellow colours were reported up and down the country.
Later on, the phenomenon spread further north towards Manchester and Liverpool, and across towards London.
The colour of the sky gradually changed from blood red to orange and then yellow by mid-afternoon.
Experts said winds were strong over Iberia on Sunday, which resulted in dust being blown to the UK by remnants of Hurricane Ophelia.
