A busy beach in the Russian region of Novosibirsk Oblast descended into chaos as the weather changed in an instant, pelting beach-goers with huge hailstones.

Temperatures were as hot as 37C to 40C on the day, giving swimmers and sunbathers no indication of the carnage about to unfold.

There were screams of horror as people ran for cover and searched for shelter under trees, umbrellas and blankets.

According to the Siberian Times one sunbather said: "It was like being hit by raining bullets from the sky," while another said it was "an attack from the heavens".
