Falmouth looks like winter scene after freak hail storm

A freak hail storm left part of Falmouth in Cornwall looking like a winter's scene.

PE teacher Tommy Matthews, 52, of The Gluyas arrived home from work to find an inch of hail covering the street.

Neighbours' garages were flooded and manholes burst as the hail turned into a stream of water.

The hail storm, which hit at about 17:00 BST, came amid a Met Office warning of heavy rain in the South West overnight and into Saturday.
