SUNDAY’S torrential rain brought with it the rare spectacle of a funnel cloud.

Some people who spotted the phenomenon in the skies of West Yorkshire, believed it to be a tornado at first, but weather experts said as it did not touch the ground it cannot be deemed a tornado.

This dramatic picture of it was snapped by Guardian reader Dave Leighton from his home in Liversedge, looking towards Dewsbury Moor.

Many thanks to other readers who took the time to send in their pictures as well.
