PHOTOS: Freezing temperatures creates ‘wonderwall’ of icicles in East Devon

These photos show a ‘wonderwall’ of hundreds of icicles in East Devon when vehicles splashing a water-filled dip in the road created a natural sculpture.

Vehicles driving along the B3181, between Westclyst and Broadclyst, this week helped this natural work of art evolve as their heavy tyres hit a large puddle, sending a shower of water onto the hedgerow multiple times a day.

Many motorists, spotting the natural phenomenon, stopped on the side of the road to take photographs before temperatures rose, and the ice melted.
