Tornado hits Selly Oak (a long time ago)

posted by James Thornett
Whilst searching for any big news story directly related to the B29 area I came across the enticing headline "Tornado hits Selly Oak".

One look at the story, from the BBC website, and it didn't take long to realise that this was quite an old story, from July 1999 in fact.

However, it still made me chuckle for a number of reasons - not least that the story is credited as "From the newsroom of the BBC World Service".

Fair play though, it appears that the story was published by a very alert journalist at a quarter past five in the morning.
