A house caught fire in the Vale of Glamorgan after being hit by lightning.

Firefighters were called to the semi-detached house in Llandow village at about 15:45 GMT on Friday.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said the roof was "well alight" when four crews and a water bowser arrived.

The fire, which caused extensive damage to the roof and first floor, has since been put out. There are no reports of any injuries.

Meanwhile, three crews were called to a house in Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent, after the roof was seen on fire at about 15:35.
