Parts of northern England have seen hail the size of golfballs

Parts of northern England have seen hail the size of golfballs as the rest of Europe swelters in record-breaking temperatures.

Violent hailstorms in Yorkshire and in County Durham damaged windows, cars and roofs. Residents said it was “unbelievable”.

Andrew Fox, who lives in Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, said: “The storm lasted five minutes and came out of nowhere – it was sunny one minute and storm the next, with hailstones the size of golf balls.”
He said the hail damaged every car in his street and the windscreen of his own car was smashed.

“I’d hate to think someone could have been caught out in the storm,” he added. “It’s no exaggeration to say one of those things could have killed someone.”
