Hail storm rattles the Midlands

Hail comes down in Notties on Saturday.

It’s been a bumpy ride in the Midlands this week, with rain and thunderstorms culminating in a heavy hail storm that hit Nottingham Road and Rosetta areas, among others, on Saturday afternoon.

As we type this, it’s started to rain hard again.

From “Monkey’s Weddings”, to long drawn-out thunderstorms, rainbows and finally a fierce hail storm that landed on Saturday, it’s been quite a ride.

On social media, locals shared pics of the hail and some of the damage:
