Twister over Croston

Millie McGuinness, 14, snapped this one in Croston. Later her father Barry reported “three or four “ more in the Longton, Little Hoole and Tarleton area.

“The photo was taken about 7.15pm,” said Barry. “It didn’t come near our house, but it did touch down locally as there were branches and debris all over the place.

“My son and I went out to ‘chase’ the storm and watched three or four more twisters develop out across the moss at Tarleton, Little Hoole and Longton. Fascinating!”

Debris was reported in Grape Lane, Croston and Bluestone Lane, Mawdesley.
