Thunder clapped loudly over Suffolk tonight as an electric storm passed overhead.


A flash of lightning signalled the start of the short storm, at around 10pm.

It was closely followed by a loud grumble, and sudden downpours.

Facebook member Sarah Anderson shared this photo of the storm over her Ipswich home while others shared that it also hit Felixstowe and Stowmarket.

The storm lasted less than half an hour. Did you capture it? Share your photos here.
