Bank Holiday spirits are set to dampen as Britain is due to be blasted with 65mph winds and heavy rain tomorrow as the Met Office issues a weather alert and a freak hail storm left the Isle of Wight looking like a winter wonderland.
Hail battered the Isle of Wight yesterday leaving the Newchurch area looking like it was in the depths of winter and covered in snow.
Jamie Russell, of the Isle of Wight Met Service, said: 'It was amazing. I couldn't believe it. I was on the southern side of a big rapeseed field near Shanklin when I noticed something slightly unusual happening in the general direction of Newchurch and headed over there.'
And across the rest of the country punters were forced to huddle under blankets and coats while dining with friends and family outside amid the torrential rain yesterday.
In Wallingford, Oxfordshire, diners braved the conditions despite the rain lashing their umbrellas during a very wet al fresco lunch.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
