Flashes of lightning lit up the sky as a torrential storm lashed  south west Hertfordshire last night.

Photographers captured dramatic shots of bolts flashing across the sky during the storm, which started in the early hours of this morning.

Emergency services said there were no reports of anyone being hurt in storm in the area.

More thunder and lightning storms are predicted for tonight and tomorrow.

Spectacular display, I expect the "big man upstairs" will be getting a huge bill through the door from EDF next month ;-)

Never witnessed anything of that intensity before in the UK - shows how powerful and strong nature can be.

Same as ...In all my 52 years that's the biggest storm I've ever witnessed! It probably carried on for 20 minutes or more.

Amazing.
