Massive op to clean up tornado devastation

A massive clean-up operation continued today to tackle the devastation caused by a terrifying mini-tornado.
Twenty people were injured when the freak twister ripped through south Birmingham yesterday, stripping houses of their roofs, uprooting hundreds of trees and knocking down walls.

Witnesses saw the winds lift cars and turn street signs and masonry into missiles when the tornado hit the city at about 2.45pm.
