A heavy hailstorm shortly before 1pm turned areas in the North and East of Malta white, brought traffic briefly to a standstill and damaged cars and solar heaters.

The Civil Protection Department issued a weather warning, urging motorists to avoid low lying areas because of the risk of flooding.

A reader said hail stones 'as big as tennis balls' had been seen in Gharghur.

Streets in various localities were carpeted in white, notably in Mosta, Mgarr, Naxxar and Burmarrad.
