Families flee homes as flash floods, lightning and GOLF BALL size hailstones hit UK

From the Express - extreme weather wreaked havoc across parts of the UK yesterday as golf ball sized hail stones rained down and the country was hit by a massive lightning storm.

"Emergency crews have spent the day pumping out water from homes after a number of incidents were caused by a massive storm which rolled through the middle of England even taking down a supermarket roof.

Flash floods bringing rainfall of up to 50mm hit parts of the country as a ferocious lightning storm crossed the mid section and headed eastwards in the late afternoon.

The village of Kirkton was deluged in water as golf ball sized hail stones slammed down in the streets of Deeping in Lincolnshire.

They also pelted the ground from morning till afternoon in Oxford."
