A dramatic photo shows the moment lightning struck a mountain in Wales.

Stephanie Hurford, 34, from Rhos in North Wales captured the image of a lightning bolt hitting Drummau Mountain on her drive home from work on May 21, 2024.

She said: "It [the storm] lasted a good half hour or so according to a local Facebook page.

"Luckily no one was injured according to the comments on the page. We seem to be seeing a lot more aggressive weather than the norm."

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning between 12pm and 9pm for parts of Wales on Tuesday.

Forecasters said lightning strikes and heavy rainfall meant there was a "chance of delays", power cuts and the possibility of flash flooding.
