Blue jelly balls in hailstorm mystify Bournemouth resident
Steve Hornsby from Bournemouth has been left puzzled by tiny blue balls which came raining down on his garden late on Thursday afternoon during a hail storm.
The Met Office said the jelly-like substance was "not meteorological".
Josie Pegg, an applied science research assistant at Bournemouth University, speculated that the apparently strange phenomena might be "marine invertebrate eggs".
Mr Hornsby said he was keeping the balls in his fridge while he tried to find out what they were.
