Video has surfaced of a twister off the Duchy's coast.

It was filmed in Whitsand Bay.

Eye witnesses say the tornado lasted around 20 minutes and stretched up hundreds of feet into the air.

The person who filmed it and posted the video on YouTube wrote: "The clouds are several hundred ft above sea level and this is at least 4/5 miles off shore. So must have been impressive for the boat that was underneath."

The video was made during last week's storms.
