Offbeat Video

By Charlotte Regen 


A devil dust tornado has been spotted on camera in DERBYSHIRE. 

Dave Lomax was at his vehicle workshop in Codnor, Derbyshire, last month when he spotted the dust whirlwind. 

The video shows the devil dust tornado moving across the small outdoor area reaching as high as a 12 storey building. 

Dave said: “I’ve seen small water tornadoes just off the coast of Cornwall before but nothing this big or as close. 

“I have watched a lot of tornado documentaries and really enjoyed Tornado Hunters on Netflix.

“The devil dust tornado must have been there for a minute or so before I started filming it.

“Me and my friend Dan heard small stones being flicked around the yard, then looked outside to this tornado that was maybe a meter wide, maybe a meter and a half, we were gobsmacked to be fair, couldn’t believe it! 

“It was 10-12 storeys high at least.

“I’ve not seen one down at the workshop since, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
