Sky-spotters were stunned to see a large tornado forming over Kent this afternoon.
Onlookers grabbed their cameras after spotting what appeared to be a twister in the skies over Dymchurch, on Romney Marsh.
The funnel cloud - technically not a tornado because it did not touch the ground - was snapped from a caravan park and elsewhere in the town.
Pictures of the would-be tornado of rapidly rotating air were posted on Twitter by Jayne Theo and Steve McGarrigle.
Holidaymaker Jayne said: "On holiday this week in Dymchurch and saw this little twister forming this afternoon!"

And Steve posted: "Wow spotted mini tornados in the sky at Dymchurch."
A funnel cloud is made up of condensed water droplets that becomes a tornado on contact with the ground.
