After Met Office warnings earlier in the week, the storm lived up to expectations, filling the sky with impressive lightning flashes and rumbles of thunder.

The storm began rolling in from the sea at about 11pm, and finished at around 2am.

This morning, there is little evidence that a storm happened at all, despite heavy rain.
