The UK can't have a sunny day without a rainstorm to balance it out. Yep, this week might have seen the hottest July day on record but the weather gods decided to go hard or go home last night (it was a Friday after all). There was thunder, lightning and rain, LOTS OF RAIN.
More storms are forecast for Sunday - but in the meantime, here's some amazing pictures of last night's super storm.

First ever attempt at capturing a lightning storm. Taken tonight overlooking London. RT's appreciated pic.twitter.com/MPUjlOExph— The Photography Chap (@photographychap) July 4, 2015
