Hayling resident Kara Saunders took dramatic pictures of the aftermath of the tornado that hit home on the island today.

Kara, who lives in Ilex Walk, was one of many householders woken by the frightening sound of destructions.

She said: It sounded like the 1987 hurricane was happening again.

‘The damage is not so bad at my end of the road, but at the other end of Ilex Walk and in Blackthorn Road there is a lot of damage to rooves.

‘At one property, there is a hole in the roof caused by a tree that then fell onto a caravan.

‘But there is a real community spirit out there - people have all been helping each other to clear up.’
