    Dear William,

    I hope you can help. I am trying to locate the photographer who supplied an image of a twister for a BBC programme in 2013.
    The credit says: Copyright William Reid / StormStock.

    If this sounds like your photo it woud be great if you could get in touch as we would like to use the image for a further use.

    I can email a visual of the image once I have for your email.

    Many thanks and looking forward to hearing back from you.

    Kind regards,

    Elena Sollazzo
