According to BBC Weather, around 15,000 lightning strikes were recorded across the South in a four hour period last night.

This comes after a streak of hot and humid weather in Sussex, with highs of 26°c in places yesterday.

The heatwave has resumed today, with sunshine across the county. But the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain and thunderstorms for tonight and much of tomorrow.
