A water spout which formed over Dover this week was captured on camera by two visitors to the town.

Sean Haughton and his girlfriend Judith Spevock were on their way to Langdon Cliffs at about 10.20am on Monday when they saw the phenomenon.

“I scrambled for my camera and pulled over in a lay-by," said Sean, who lives in Sutton, Surrey.

"Once we had stopped, we could see the circular motion of the funnel cloud, so any doubts we’d had were dispelled and we were sure of what we were dealing with.

“I jumped out and took a few shots. We watched the waterspout drift across the bay for about five minutes, by which time it had weakened to the point where the spout was no longer visible breaking the surface water, to the naked eye at least."
