‘Beast from the East’ snowballs are being offered for £2.50 on eBay

AN eBay seller is trying to flog “genuine” snowballs collected from the Beast from the East last year.

The snowballs, which were apparently collected in March last year, currently have just one bid for £2.99.

The listing includes a picture of two snowballs that are said to be from the infamous weather phenomenon.

David Miller, from Torquay, Devon is the man behind the bizarre listing, which he is hoping will fund for a ski trip.

Mr Miller writes: “Genuine Beast from the East snow from March 2018. This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a phenomenal piece of historical British weather based memorabilia.”

He claims the snow has been stored in a special container since it fell to keep it frozen.

The savvy seller continued: “Has been lovingly stored in an environment encapsulation unit at the correct temperature to preserve this piece of art.”

The lucky eBay user who wins the auction will have to refreeze the snowballs when they are delivered.

He added: “I’ll be sent in a watertight container and may need resetting in your own environment encapsulation unit upon arrival.”

 The return of the Beast from the East is set to bring snow later this month

Mr Miller hopes to fund a trip to Alaska with the proceeds of the sale.

On the listing he claims will use the expedition to “collect other snow samples”.

The Beast from the East brought the country to a standstill last year when heavy snowfall struck from the end of February to the beginning of March.

Experts have predicted that the extreme weather will return later this month.

The whole of the UK will be hit by strong winds over the weekend, with gales touching 50mph threatening to hit parts of the north.

The Met Office predicts that the rest of the month will be very cold and there will be an “enhanced risk” of snowfall.
