Second tornado strikes Birmingham

Another tornado has struck Birmingham under a mile from the scene of this summer’s disaster. Emergency services were called to Passey Road in Moseley early on Wednesday evening. One home was evacuated after its roof was ripped off and a nearby road was closed, although no one was injured

Very curious – we’ve had a spate of these recently.
