This is the Oxford cell taken from Westbury. First image at 20.06, second at 20.20 . Visible explosion borne out by the radar. And in 5 more minutes it has a spectacular anvil!

I used to live in Ickenham, I remember some immense storms back in the late 70s/early 80s!

Hah I'm too young for that but I remember a few proper humdingers in the 90s when I was growing up. All night jobs! Used to be scared of it. 

This one is pretty beasty so far
