Wednesday evening's thunderstorms have spawned some would-be tornadoes in the Anglia region. This video was taken by Todd Unsworth at Red Lodge between Mildenhall and Newmarket in Suffolk at around 6pm.

It shows a funnel cloud developing from the base of a thunderstorm cloud. Only if the twister reaches the ground does it becomes a tornado. Mr Unsworth then spotted a second funnel cloud minutes later in the same area.
