Residents in Cherry Croft in Wick were hit by a mini tornado late last night (September 17), which left windows in homes and cars blown out and tree branches broken in two.

A spokesperson for West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service said:

"Sunday night (17 September) at 11.53pm we responded to multiple incidents at Cherry Croft, Littlehampton.

"Joint Fire Control sent one fire engine from Littlehampton to the scene.

"Upon arrival firefighters found that a number of properties and vehicles in the area had been damaged as a result of the storm. This included a tree that had fallen onto a car and a sky light had been removed by the wind, with rain water leaking into the affected property.

"Crews helped to make the scene safe and administered first aid to one resident with minor injuries. West Sussex County Council’s Highways team were also informed of the obstruction on the highway.

"Firefighters booked away from the scene at around 12.45am."
