Nature put on a light show for us on Monday night with residents across the borough capturing spectacular images of lightning.

Storms occurred across the region thanks to the heatwave we're currently experiencing.

The hot, humid air leads to an unstable atmosphere as it reacts to the much colder air below.

What made the storm even more interested was the lack of thunder and rain, with lightning being the star of the show.

More thunderstorms have been predicted in the North West by the Met Office over the coming days so expect to see more scenes like these.
