A burst water major has transformed a suburban street in Gloucestershire right into a sensational icicle phenomenon after Britain was hit with sub-zero temperatures. 

The icicle forest was created by accident by passing cars which splashed water from a burst water major onto a hedge by the side of the road.

Helen Stratford, a mum from Staunton, Gloucestershire, saw the creation at the underside of her road which caught her and other local’s attention. 

Her daughter, Sabrina, 9, was fascinated by the icicles, and like many others desired to go and see the icicles close up.

Ms Stratford took Sabrina to marvel on the creation after school to take some inspiring winter photos.

She said: ‘I’ve driven past it on daily basis, it is a phenomenon of nature I suppose.

‘My daughter says they appear like organ pipes on the cathedral, and desired to go and see them.

‘We went when she broke up from school and it was so slippery but she wanted me to take a photograph.

‘People have been bombing past it and never it properly, but since I shared the photo they’ve stopped and realised it’s quite remarkable.’

It is not just Sabrina who was amazed by the brand new sculpture as one local wrote online: ‘Never seen anything like that before….good pic!’

Helen hopes the icicle mound will grow because the weather forecast continues to predict sub-zero temperatures over the weekend.

She said: ‘At any time when people drive past they splash it and it adds more to it.

‘It truly is amazing and truly unique.’
