    Violent thunderstorms broke out across the southeast of England on the 5th of September 1958 producing amazing lightning displays, severe downdraughts and even tornadoes. The most striking event however was the giant hail that fell on parts of Sussex. At Horsham, a hailstone weighing 141g was measured and was the size of a tennis ball, the heaviest hailstone ever recorded in the UK.

    It was a very warm start to September 1958
