A number of houses in Co Antrim have been damaged by what local residents are describing as a mini-tornado.
Tiles were stripped from the roofs of the houses in the Thorndene Park area of Carrickfergus when freak winds hit the area at around 9pm last night.
A number of cars were also damaged, while a motorist was also hospitalised after crashing his vehicle during the chaos.
