A severe hailstorm hit Portugal on Friday sweeping through Lisbon and causing transport disruptions in the city.

Cars and roads were covered and photos were posted online showing workers shovelling the hailstones.

The aftermath of the huge hailstorm was captured on video, with people seen walking through the knee-deep hailstones.
