This is the moment a severe thunderstorm struck the town of St Ives in southwest England.

In the time-lapse video, filmed at 6am this morning (December 29), several flashes of lightning can be seen.

According to local media, the lightning this morning struck a plane, forcing the pilot to turn around. The Channel Islands flight was heading from Guernsey to Manchester when the strike occurred in poor weather.

It is thought to have affected some of the electrics on the Aurigny flight GR670, which departed at 7.25am, the report said.
