A PE class had to run for cover as it started raining worms.

Teacher David Crichton was leading a group of pupils playing football at Galashiels Academy when dozens of the invertebrates began plummeting from the sky. The 22 second-year boys had to abandon their lesson.

Mr Crichton said the children had justcompleted their warm-up when they began to hear "soft thudding" on the ground.

The class then looked to the cloudless sky - and saw worms falling on to them.

Mr Chrichton, 26, said he was baffled by the incident, with teachers later finding more worms spread across a tennis court almost 100 yards away.

Well, I guess it depends on the worm... For example, the Sandworms of Dune would probably make a pretty major noise when they hit the ground...

So the closest thing to a scientific explanation is what a PE teacher said and what the reporter said....... Nice.... lol

I really wanted a proper scientific explanation, I guess if we want to know me we have to look into ourselves.

With camera phones coming out the wazoo out there, you think somebody would have a picture of the worms.

You hear rain, don't you? It makes noise when it hits things. Why wouldn't worms?

Embrace the impossible.
