GRANTHAM, England, May 1 (UPI) -- A mini-tornado scattered food when it lifted a back-yard gazebo off its foundation during a cookout, the owner of the gazebo in Britain said.
Martin Clark captured the 20-foot tall storm on his cell phone video camera as it traveled through his backyard barbecue in Grantham Saturday.
"The twister was picking up a load of dust from the building site but by the time I got my phone out it had disappeared," Clark told the Grantham Journal. "Then it came back a couple of seconds later and I caught it on my phone."
Clark said, "It was a pretty clear day and we were having a barbecue when all of a sudden out of nowhere there it was."
A twister was also spotted in the Caythrope area. There were no reports of injury from either storm.
"You don't expect to see something like that in Grantham.
"We were a bit worried at first when we saw all the dust," Clark said. "It was weird because there was no wind at all. It was quite surreal really."
Hot, dry weather over the bank holiday weekend was believed to be responsible for the phenomenon.
