This is the remarkable moment a mound of hay got whipped up - and blown around in a WHIRLWIND before vanishing into the sky in the southwest of England.

Stunned onlookers stopped in their tracks to take in the "amazing" sight on Saturday in Taunton, Somerset, as the air swirled for three or four minutes.
