Twister forming over the moors in Cornwall
These pictures and video show the moment powerful storm clouds gather over the moors in Cornwall - forming into a twister.

The funnel from the clouds was spotted over Bodmin Moor at Minions by Alan Morris, from Callington, who quickly turned his camera to the sky to capture the moment the wild weather unfolded.

He shot this video as the twister as it dissipated over the hills after capturing a series of images of the powerful weather phenomenon as the twister formed before reaching down to the ground.

The images show how the weather turned pretty wild over Bodmin Moor.

The pictures were taken on Monday afternoon.

"We were working in the garden," he said. "The tornado appeared over the Caradon Hill aerials at Minions."
