Pot holes and nature combine to create spectacular ice sculpture in Haynes

Residents and motorists in Haynes have been treated to an incredible ice sculpture thanks to the combination of sub zero temperatures and some perfectly placed pot holes.

As motorists drove past, water from the pot holes has been splashed onto the roadside trees and become instantly frozen to create the temporary stalactite-like icicles.
