This is the dramatic moment shocked onlookers saw a huge tornado forming over Kent.
Sky-spotters were stunned to see what appeared to be a twister in the skies over Sandwich yesterday morning.
It was one of two funnel clouds - technically not a tornado because they did not touch the ground - spotted at about 9.15am.
The first would-be tornado of rapidly rotating air was spotted in a dark sky over Eastry by Jae Kay.
And just moments later, another was photographed by Chelsie Meakin at a car boot sale in nearby Tilmanstone.
A funnel cloud is made up of condensed water droplets that becomes a tornado on contact with the ground.
