Two English cricket fans claim that they were hit by meteorites when they were watching a county cricket match between Middlesex and Sussex in Uxbridge when it hurtled towards them. Jan Marszal, 51, and Richard Haynes, 52 were the two Sussex fans that claim such incident.

One piece struck Mr Marszal on the chest, while the other bounced on the boundary board. They described the rock landing five yards inside the boundary, before breaking in two, with one part bouncing up and striking Marszal on the chest.

Mr Marszal, an IT consultant, said: "'We were sitting at the boundary edge when all of a sudden, out of a blue sky, we saw this small dark object hurtling towards us.

"'It landed five yards inside the boundary and split into two pieces.

"One piece bounced up and hit me in the chest and the other ended up against the boundary board." (as reported by Uxbridgegazette.co.uk)

Meteorite expert Dr Matthew Genge said: "It would be the first fall in the UK since 1992."
