A man claims to have photographed a twister above Orpington.

Colin Childs says he snapped the mini-tornado on Friday (June 28) evening.

The 59-year-old, from Sevenoaks, said: "It was Friday at around 9pm.

"I was by Orpington station and looked up the hill, up Crofton Road, and there it was.

"I thought straight away it was a twister, but I'm not sure that's possible - maybe it was just a strange cloud formation.

"Whatever it was I've never really seen anything like it."
