Terrifying tornado captured sweeping through Cumbria

This amazing footage shows a TORNADO pass within 50 feet of a car in Cumbria.

Looking like a scene from the American Mid-West, the footage shows how perilously close the vortex comes to the vehicle.

As high winds and driving rain batter the country, this tornado hit Hatherthwaite and Backbarrow in South Cumbria on Wednesday evening.
