A HAILSTORM brought a Spanish town to a complete standstill and trapping many in their cars.
The short but intense storm caught drivers by surprise, with footage showing a man stuck in his car, who had to be rescued by emergency services. Three firefighters and the rescued man had to be treated for hypothermia but recovered fully.

Many others had to be freed from their vehicles in the San Julian area of Teruel (Aragon)and snowploughs were working hard to restore normality.
Footage of the downpours soon went viral on social media.
