It’s not really news – but it’s a great picture.
Jessica Shell captured a lightning strike which lit up the Brighton i360 which is currently being built on the seafront. She took the photo on Tuesday (30 June).
There may have been storms out to sea but it’s stayed hot and dry ashore with temperatures topping 90F – or up into the thirties in new money.
Although it was humid this evening, temperatures cooled. Forecasters suggested that they could hover around 16C – or just over 60F.
With a few more hot days in prospect – though not quite as hot – forecasters have advised that people drink enough to stay hydrated, stick to the shade and cover up.
