A funnel cloud was captured forming in the skies over Tintagel yesterday (June 28).

This is one of many funnel clouds that have been spotted recently in the skies in The Post area including Holsworthy and Camelford.

Funnel clouds or ‘tuba’ are extending ‘finger like’ clouds which do not normally reach the ground. In the UK are are typically harmless, however in extreme weather hot spots, such as in the USA, they can become tornadoes or waterspouts if they hit a body of water.
