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.
"Vehicles parked close to St Luke's Primary School were also damaged as were several other houses in the area.
"Officers have been in attendance but we have not had any reports of people being injured at this stage."
People have reported their sightings of the tornado on social media.

It starts as a funnel cloud which can extend all the way to the ground and then becomes a tornado.
