Lightning strikes captured in mobile phone footage

Dramatic lightning strikes were captured in mobile phone footage as storms hit Greater Manchester.

Victoria Gill filmed the storm using a fixed camera stuck on her dashboard while on the M66 near Ramsbottom, Bury, on Tuesday night.

The storms caused widespread disruption across north west England, postponing a football match at Manchester City and suspending the city's tram network.
