A PE class had to run for cover as it started raining worms.
Teacher David Crichton was leading a group of pupils playing football at Galashiels Academy when dozens of the invertebrates began plummeting from the sky. The 22 second-year boys had to abandon their lesson
Mr Crichton said the children had just completed their warm-up when they began to hear "soft thudding" on the ground.
The class then looked to the cloudless sky - and saw worms falling on to them.
Raining animals is a rare meteorological phenomenon in which flightless animals "rain" from the sky, although occurrences have been reported from many countries throughout history. One hypothesis that has been offered to explain this phenomenon is that strong winds traveling over water sometimes pick up creatures such as fish or frogs, and carry them for up to several miles. However, this primary aspect of the phenomenon has never been witnessed or scientifically tested.
