Amazing pictures: London’s spectacular lightning storms

Did you wake up in the middle of the night last night to flashing light and loud crashing?

Thunder and lightning storms blasted the capital,  keeping thousands of us awake and causing some serious damage.

A total of 31 firefighters and officers tackled a blaze at a house in Streatham, south London, which was caused by lightning striking a television aerial.

There were more than 3,000 flashes in just two hours. We gathered the best pictures from around the capital:
