It was without doubt the most surreal moment of the morning.
These incredible pictures show an enormous BEACH BALL rolling around one of London's busiest roundabouts.
The 10-metre wide ball had been tethered to a building near Old Street Tube station.
But with powerful wind speeds caused by the huge storm, the ball broke free and began to bounce around.

Pictures of it quickly emerged on social media sites showing motorists attempting to dodge the enormous ball as they made their way to work.
But as these pictures show, the ball soon became a victim of the storm.
