A mysterious shape in sky above Great Yarmouth has left one reader puzzled.
A reader sent in the above photo which was taken on their phone on Friday, April 8 in Northgate Street, Great Yarmouth.
They thought it might have been a tornado but did not know for sure.
Jim Bacon, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said from the photo it looked like a funnel cloud and there were some large cumulus clouds in the area at the time.
A funnel cloud is a funnel-shaped cloud of condensed water droplets, associated with a rotating column of wind and extending from the base of a cloud – usually a cumulonimbus or towering cumulus cloud – but not reaching the ground or a water surface.
