The Times (p1) covers the repair operation that is taking place in Selsey, West Sussex, after a 100mph tornado cut through the town and damaged 1,000 buildings. The bill facing the town could rise beyond£2 million after the freak whirlwind struck just before midnight on Wednesday.

West Sussex CC yesterday brought its emergency planning procedure into action and more than 120 firemen from across the county were drafted in to help to make houses and shops safe. An emergency shelter was set up in the high street parish hall. Police and firemen stayed in the town last night to monitor the damage, and homeowners were warned not to be taken in by 'cowboy' builders offering their services.
