A major clean-up operation is underway after a tornado hit Hayling Island in Hampshire.

The storm swept through the area at around 8am on Sunday morning leaving trees uprooted and damaging up to 100 houses.

Hampshire Council said there have been no injuries reported and emergency services were sent to the scene, but building officers are now satisfied that all the buildings are safe.

Ian Hoult, head of emergency planning at Hampshire County Council, told the BBC: “Fortunately we don’t know of anyone being hurt, but it’s an interesting situation for a Sunday morning.”

The Portsmouth News reports that nearly 100 houses had their roofs damaged by high winds and rain.

Cars were also said to have been damaged by fallen trees and broken fences, and beach huts on the seafront took a battering.

Cheryl Hart told The News the tornado sounded like “a freight train hurtling along the road”.

She said: “It woke me up. You could hear it coming. It sounded like a freight train coming up the road. You could actually see it. It’s difficult to describe but it was like a big grey wall. I didn’t see any rubbish or debris in it – just a big grey wall of wind.

“We have just got a bit of damage to our garden but other homes have been hit. One has a kayak that has been blown into the garden. No-one knows where it has come from.”

Hampshire Constabulary said they had received reports of disruption thought to be have been caused by the unusual weather and officers had been working with fire crews and the council on the clear-up.

Other residents took to Twitter to describe the aftermath.

Richard Cowdrey wrote: “So there was a mini tornado this morning, that explains the mess outside! #Windy #Mess #Tornado”

Paul Knightley, forecast manager for Meteogroup, said: “The conditions were favourable for a tornado; there is an unstable atmosphere, it is fairly warm for this time of year and there is a lot of moisture in the air.”

He said there had been some evidence over the years of higher incidences of tornadoes along the coastline between Portsmouth and Brighton.
