The country came to a standstill as hailstones pummeled unsuspecting residents on Tuesday.

True to its name, the unpredictable British weather kept people on their soggy toes when the grey clouds and light rain turned into a torrent of tiny blocks of ice.

Brits were battered with hailstones and took to Twitter to express their shock at being caught off guard during the unruly weather conditions.

Is it REALLY May?

No, seriously?

They're more painful than they look...

Actually, they're not so bad after all...

Please, can I JUST eat my falafel?
