A rare tornado hit an area outside Manchester in the UK

A tornado hit otherwise quiet areas outside Manchester in the UK on Friday.

It uprooted trees and unnerved locals unused to what is a rare weather event in the UK.

Animals at the Alpaca farm where a tree was uprooted (shown in the video) were indoors at the time and unhurt, said Martin Kevill, who shot the video.

The tornado hit the Greater Manchester and Cheshire area at about 16:30BST on Friday 19 July.
