On the letters page of July 10, a photograph is shown of lightning during an electrical storm in Balby on July 4. The alleged photographer is Chris Stanley.
A quick Google search confirms that this photo isn’t from Balby at all, nor is it from the UK. Despite the ferocity of the recent storms, the lightning bolts were never that spectacular. This photo is from Australia and is a series of strikes captured over 20 minutess all superimposed on top of each other.
I’d be interested to know if anybody else has spotted this, or indeed if Mr Stanley will admit to it.
