A huge lightning storm light up the sky over Cornwall last night, with more forecast to follow this weekend.

With rolling thunder, downpours and repeated flashes of lightning making a spectacular sight, the storm brought weather watchers out to photograph and enjoy Mother Nature's stunning display.

This is the storm as it tracked over Cornwall, with the lightning strikes marked.

Brilliant selection of pictures, Porthleven of course is my favourite. The force of nature never ceases to provide wonderful displays.
