Woman filming lightning has near miss in Tunbridge Wells

A woman has told of her lucky escape after lightning struck just feet away while she was filming a storm.

Susannah Ford-Crush, a photographer from Tunbridge Wells, was filming from her open bedroom window when a bolt of lightning hit scaffolding on a house next door.

She was thrown on to her bed and said her skin smelt "smoky" afterwards.
