|After a series of storm warnings, drivers in the evening rush hour were prepared for almost anything. |
Except, that is, for it to start raining apples.
Scores of them battered car roofs and windscreens before landing in the road at a busy junction in Coundon, Coventry.
The deluge of fruit brought traffic to a standstill at 6.45pm on Monday.
A 20-yard stretch of the B4098 was left strewn with green slush after the incident.
One motorist, who was travelling with her husband, said: ‘The apples fell out of nowhere. They were small and green and hit the bonnet hard. Everyone had to stop their cars suddenly.’
The phenomenon is believed to be down to a mini tornado which touched down elsewhere, sucking apples from the ground or from trees.
