UK weather: Massive tornado 'lifted lambs in the air' as 114mph winds wreak havoc – as -3C frost hits Britain

A MASSIVE tornado has lifted LAMBS into the air as 114mph winds and a -3C frost hit Britain.

Gogarth Hall Farm in Gwynedd, Wales, suffered at least £100,000-worth of damage when the T3 tornado swept through.

Farm owner Deilwen Breese said her lambs were swept up in the 114mph tornado – and one ewe was lost all together when the gales struck on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Brits faced a chilly start to the weekend, with lows of -3C recorded in Cumbria this morning.

And Sunday will be no better, with temperatures plunging to below freezing in Wales.

But forecasts look set to improve as the day goes on, with highs of 13C in London by mid-afternoon.

Tornado and Storm Research Organisation investigator John Mason confirmed Wednesday's gales were a tornado.

He said: "The tornado was confirmed as there was plenty of evidence of objects being airborne and spinning around the circulation before falling to the ground."

He added that he believed it had a strength of between 93mph to 114mph.

Farmer Deilwen said she was away when she received a phone call telling her to come home.

Deilwen said she did not realise the scale of the damage until she got back.

"I thought it was just that part of the roof had gone," she said.

"But oh my god, when I came home I could not believe it."

Deilwen said she was still in shock from the incident.

"The devastation, it was heartbreaking," she said.


"I am still in shock, really."

Deilwen added: "Trees had been lifted from their roots.

"If they hadn't been lifted they had just been tarnished.

"We have lost hundreds of trees."

Deilwen said that the damage to the roof was "about £100,000".

"When I got to the farm I could see the damage to the roof, it's about £100,000 worth of damage."

She said a group of 12 local volunteers were now helping her clear the devastation.

However, Deilwen feels that the farm will not be the same.

She said: "It's going to take months, it will never get back, not in my lifetime. It will never come back to what it was."
