Rumble This footage shows a naturally formed ‘ice disc’ floating on the surface of a partially frozen river and spinning on its own like a piece of clockwork.

The extremely rare natural phenomenon - which made headlines across the globe when it was spotted in Maine, US, earlier this year - was filmed by meteorologists in the city of Genhe, which is in North China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, on 3rd November.

The ice disc - also known as an ice pan or an ice crepe - was seen on the Genhe River, after which the city is named.
