… That is what Steve Hornsby, 61, saw when he was caught in a freak 20-second hail storm.

… After the storm stopped he realised that, in addition to the hailstones, the cloud had also deposited the transparent, marble-sized objects on the lawn.

To preserve the evidence from last Thursday’s storm, Mr Hornsby, an aircraft engineer, scooped some into a jar for a closer look.

He said yesterday: ‘It looked like broken glass. They were definitely not there before the storm.

‘There must be about 20 complete spheres. I’ve been an aircraft engineer for many years and I’ve never seen anything like it.’
