According to new research, Tornados are more likely in England than any other part of the UK and Ireland, with the majority concentrated between London and Reading.
Researchers from the University of Manchester have produced a new map using eyewitness reports captured from 1980 to 2012 in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
The area from Bristol, north to Birmingham and Manchester was the second most likely to experience a tornado, with the northeast of London to Ipswich coming third.
In the study published in June's issue of Monthly Weather Review, researchers said that between 1980 and 2012 there was an average of 34.3 tornadoes each year, with the majority being categorised as F0 or F1 tornadoes, meaning they had wind speeds up to 112 mph.
