Watch spectacular video of lightning rip across Chester skies

Dramatic scenes during thunderstorm

Lightning lit up the skies over Chester and Ellesmere Port in a stunning display of colour last night (August 16).

The thunderstorm only lasted minutes but it was seen and felt by many across the borough, including Richard Johnson, the manager of The Stamford Bridge gastropub on Tarvin Road.

He captured the lightning at the exact moment it hit the sky.
