A man in Dorset has been left mystified after tiny blue spheres fell from the sky into his garden.
Steve Hornsby from Bournemouth said the 3cm diameter balls came raining down late on Thursday afternoon during a hail storm.
He found about a dozen of the balls in his garden. He said: "[They're] difficult to pick up, I had to get a spoon and flick them into a jam jar."
The Met Office said the jelly-like substance was "not meteorological".
Mr Hornsby, a former aircraft engineer, said: "The sky went a really dark yellow colour.
"As I walked outside to go to the garage there was an instant hail storm for a few seconds and I thought, 'what's that in the grass'?" . . .
