Tornado sighted in Scotland as thunderstorm sweeps across country

A tornado was sighted in Scotland as torrential rain and thunderstorms swept across parts of the country.

People in Midlothian were surprised to see the unusual weather event on Tuesday afternoon.

A yellow Met Office warning of thunderstorms was in effect for much of central, east and north-east Scotland until 11pm on Tuesday.

The Met Office said the tornado was a waterspout, a type of tornado that forms over open water.

Twitter user Aisling posted a video of her driving past Rosewell, Midlothian, writing: “Never seen anything like it. It went right past our house. The video doesn’t show how intense it was.”

Others shared their surprise, with one person writing, “Never seen a tornado in Midlothian before,” while another person tweeted, “Tornado in Midlothian. Crazy weather.”
