PHOTOS: Hail size of golf balls rain down on region
Hailstone the size of golf balls caused havoc across the region last night, even putting dents in cars.
Residents in areas such as Bradford and Halifax reported dents in their cars, and one woman in Halifax had holes in her conservatory roof.
Daniel Tillotson, from Keighley, said: “While watching last nights thunder and lightning storm these giant hailstones broke out and lasted around 5 minutes showing no mercy! I’ve never seen anything like it in my life!”
It hailed for around five to 10 minutes between 11pm to 12am.
Over 19,500 lightning strikes were recorded across the UK in 34 hours, according to the Met Office.
Severe weather warning has been issued for isolated heavy and possibly severe thunderstorms to develop Friday evening.
