Flying pigs killed in Notts

PIGS were killed when a tornado at Sutton-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, lifted their pens more than a quarter of a mile through the air.

The pigs, belonging to farmer Michael Hewson, were killed by “flying huts”.

One eye witness reported seeing pigs being hurled around among chimney pots and tiles.
