Man nearly hit by branch during tornado

A man in Altrincham had a lucky escape on July 19, when strong winds, from what the Met Office described as a tornado, sent a large tree branch crashing to the ground beside him. The tornado was first reported via a weather report from Manchester Airport. Visitors to the Royal Horticultural Society’s Tatton Park Flower Show spotted the cloud and posted video to social media. Residents in Hale shared images of the destruction caused by the strong winds, which tore roof tiles and metal off buildings and threw debris onto cars. Credit: Paul Knights via Storyful
