It is one of several photos and videos sent in by readers tonight.

A huge bolt of lightning was spotted above Hillsborough, where Sheffield Wednesday are playing tonight.

But don't worry - the storm should only be a few hours long.

The Met Office forecast says: "Any heavy showers and locally torrential, thundery downpours will gradually ease and clear north overnight.

"This will leave a mainly dry but warm and muggy night. Some mist, fog and low cloud will form in places, especially near the coast. Minimum Temperature 15 °C."
