THUNDER and lightning was accompanied by hailstones which left Quadring in a white out on Friday.
The freak storm hit shortly after 8pm and made a summer’s day look like the depths of winter.
Hailstones – 1cm square and bigger – pummelled everything in their wake and left many garden plants hanging in shreds.
Some gardens were still strewn with hailstones at a depth of three to four inches until after lunchtime on Saturday.
In nearby Donington, Lincolnshire Free Press reader Andy Scott took a picture of a funnel cloud over the rooftops,
Mr Scott said if a funnel cloud touches the ground it becomes a tornado.
He said: “I believe that touchdown may have been somewhere on the Quadring Fen area – subject to confirmation.”
