Hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of bank notes blew through the wealthy city of Dubai earlier this month.

People abandoned their cars and scrambled for cash after it started 'raining money'.

Pedestrians dodged traffic to run into the road to pick up the swirling 500 UAE Dirham notes – worth around $160 each .

The notes were carried by strong winds through the Jumeirah area of the city for several minutes, but locals have got no idea where they came from.

One surprised man described how his wife pulled over her car to film motorists dodging cash collectors on a busy stretch of highway in the city.

He said: “It was just raining money.

“It was 500 AED notes which is worth quite a lot. It was a lot of money.

“A lot of people were getting out of there cars to grab this.

It doesn’t happen every day. Everyone was amazed this was happening.”

The baffling incident happened at around 3pm on on February 11 and, so far, no explanation has been given.

Police later arrived at the area and ushered people away, local media reports.
