Wessex FM has been investigating a weather photo of a rather suspicious shape in the sky over Weymouth!

Simon Maple, from the town, captured the image near the Bob Lucas Stadium on Sunday, just before the heavens opened and it started to rain.

After taking a look here at Wessex FM we decided to contact our friends at the MET Office to find out more.

Forecaster's passed the image around the office and took a closer look. After an hour or so we received a call back and forecaster Margaret Emery told us the cone shaped cloud was a mini tornado, called a Waterspout.
