Bonnyrigg tornado: Midlothian mum shocked after she spotted tornado amid Met Office yellow weather warning
A tornado was spotted in Midlothian by a mum-of-one, as a thunderstorm hit Edinburgh and the Lothians yesterday afternoon.
The waterspout tornado was seen ripping through fields in Bonnyrigg and Roslin, at around 3.30pm on Tuesday.
"I have always wanted to see one, it wasn't scary."
A Twitter user posted a video of it passing Rosewell, Midlothian, writing: "Never seen anything like it. It went right by our house. The video doesn't capture how intense it was."
Midlothian Council told the BBC there were no reports of any significant damage caused by the tornado.
While the weather forecaster has not issued another alert, thunder showers are expected to hit Edinburgh this afternoon.
