“Excellent photos of funnel clouds sent in by our Weather Watchers in the Durham area today,” BBC Weather tweeted.

A funnel cloud does not touch the earth’s surface, while a tornado does, The MET Office said.

“In a typical year, the UK sees around 30-35 tornadoes each year, though it is very rare that are they strong enough to cause any significant damage,” according to the service.
