Coming up to the first anniversary for this event for my location. Has anyone got data on this supercell? Soundings, how strong it was etc?

Remember seeing the radar and sferics when the storm was over Cheshire and I thought it was heading NWwards but instead it seemed to heading towards my location. Remember people commenting on this and saying something was afoot and it was a potential supercell on the forums

Could see the sky to my south getting darker and darker and I could hear thunder

Then the hail core hit directly with marble sized hail and the visibility dropped to next nothing with strong gusty winds. Didn't hear much thunder but the hail roar was phenomenal. I haven't seen a hailstorm that fierce.
