It is difficult to determine, but the heaviest objects lifted by a tornado appear to be a set of three oil tanks, each weighing 90 tons. The tornado struck Pecos County, Texas on June 1, 1990. The tornado was officially rated F4 as it hit few structures, but of ground scouring and the carried oil tanks suggests that the tornado's intensity was well into the F5 range.

Did the tornado in bicester to kidlington touch the ground?

Yes. Debris was lifted into the air meaning the circulation reached the ground, though it appears to have been very weak. If it doesn't touch down it isn't counted as a tornado.

Can a cloud of debris mark the location of a tornado?

Yes. The funnel of a tornado does not have to reach the ground for the circulation to touch down. If there is swirling debris on the ground beneath a funnel cloud then the tornado has touched down and, if it is more than just dirt being lifted, is probably doing damage.
