The Met Office has confirmed that the extreme weather in Northampton earlier today was a tornado.
"Our chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen has watched the footage and is happy it was a tornado.
"The weather conditions were right at the times, their was unstable air mass which created pockets of low pressure.
"This in turn created a funnel cloud which did touch down in the area and therefore it would be classified as an official tornado."
Meanwhile, East Midlands Ambulance Service says it is not aware of any injuries.
Northamptonshire Police says it has received a number of calls about a tornado in the Duston area of Northampton.
"We had our first call at around 1.10pm to reports of damaged roof tiles to a property.

"Officers have been in attendance but we have not had any reports of people being injured at this stage."

The pair were charged by a Turkish court with “aiding a terrorist organisation”.
The journalists' fixer, an Iraqi national, remained in custody pending investigation, the source said.
VICE News has received confirmation from the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office that two of our journalists, Jake Hanrahan and Philip Pendlebury have been released from a Turkish prison."
"While we are grateful that they have been freed, we are deeply worried by reports that our other VICE News colleague, Mohammed Ismael Rasool, has had his appeal of release rejected by the Turkish government. Rasool is an experienced journalist and translator who has worked extensively across the Middle East with VICE News, Associated Press, and Al Jazeera."
"We call on the Turkish authorities for a swift end to this unjust detainment and to grant his immediate release."
