A shopping centre clock tower in East Sussex has caught fire after being struck by lightning.
Firefighters were called to the Original Factory Shop at the Fernbank Centre in Crowborough when the fire broke out earlier.
The clock face was knocked to the ground by the strike.
Crews said the High Street was expected to remain closed until at least 06:00 BST on Tuesday due to work to make the building safe.
