tomato leaf curl

I have one tomato plant that has curling top leaves, they are a tight ball and on the one moneymaker plant that I bought when 4 inches high.   The rest of my plants are this years GW red berry and so far are ok.    Please see photo for extent of the problem.  Any help greatfully received.

    I've had it on my plants occasionally.
    I think it may be something to do with big temperature swings between day and night as it seems to happen around this time of year.
    Mine always sort themselves out in a few days - hopefully yours will too

    I agree, some plants do it, others don't, but I rarely see a year when there isn't a bit of that sort of top growth.  Never seems to do any harm though.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you for your advice, should I ignore it, cut off the offending leaves or try and move the plant or protect it from what may be the troublesome heat/draught?

    Just leave it - it'll grow out soon
