(G: NB – There is no such thing as a mini tornado, it is either a tornado or not a tornado)

Roads are reportedly still shut this morning (Saturday) following the freak weather – which saw strong winds and floods hit locations across Calderdale.

Cyclists are currently being warned to approach the popular Cragg Vale route with care – after trees fell down and the road was filled with debris.

A clean up of the area is reportedly underway. It’s believed Cragg Vale is closed just above the 5km mark due to a clearing of trees which came down last night (Friday).

The goings on have sparked a web frenzy, with readers venting on twitter and facebook over the weather.
