MASSIVE hailstones battered a remote village on a Scottish island smashing through a car windscreen.
Blocks of ice the size of pound coins rained down on the the villages of Ness on the Isle of Lewis in a freak winter storm.
The back screen of a car window was smashed by the force of the hail as thunder and lighting rumbled across the island.
Kay Gunn, postmistress at the Port of Ness Post Office, said: “I’d never heard anything like it in all my life.”
She continued: “The wind picked up. We heard a rumble and at first we thought it was a lorry.
“There was a big flash and another rumble and then the hailstones started.”
Local crofter Donald MacSween, who posted images of the damage on Twitter, said: “It happened at the back of 11 last night.
“There was loud thunder less than a mile away. Then there were these marble sized hailstones.
“I’ve never seen them that big before in real life.”
Mr MacSween said he looked out the window and some of his sheep were “going bananas”.
“It [the hailstones] only lasted about a minute,” he added.
