Twitter was buzzing overnight with hundreds of images of lightning from a storm which swept over parts of the UK last night.

Friday saw a final push of hot continental air into southern England which made its way over Flintshire as it headed north.

Large amounts of energy in this atmosphere meant for some, a spectacular lightning storm with thunder and even huge hail stones a feature.

Lightning detection website blitzortung.org reported over 93000 strikes in the UK overnight.
