A home in Milton Keynes was struck by lightning during last weekend's storms. The home, in Artemis Grove, Brooklands, was damaged by the strike and sparked a response from the fire service.

The incident took place on Sunday during the Met Office's yellow weather warning . Thunderstorms hit much of the West Midlands and the south of England, which led some areas to suffer flooding.

After the home was hit by the lightning strike, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service dispatched three appliances to the scene. They arrived from Broughton, West Ashland and Buckingham. The smell of smoke was noticeable when they arrived.

During their work, the firefighters used a short extension ladder, a thermal imaging camera, a gas monitor, small gear and a positive pressure ventilation fan.
