Chris Witts interviewed by Tessa Chapman for Sky News at Minsterworth on Tuesday 2nd March 2010

Before the bore arrives the air becomes still, then leaves rustle on the tress. A noise like steam escaping from an engine becomes louder and all of a sudden it has arrived.

A wave anything up to 3 metres in height quickly rushes by, followed by one or two smaller waves.

An hour later the banks of the River Severn fill up with water, the current flowing towards Gloucester at about 12 mph.
