Parts of Kent have been battered by hailstones at the start of what is traditionally the sunniest month of the year.
Residents across the country have reported experiencing sunshine, rain, hail and then sunshine again in the space of a few hours, as temperatures have remained at around 20C.
It caused havoc with outdoor events, including the Sheppey Pirates Festival, with a sudden downpour causing spectators to run for cover.
