Lightning bolts lit up St Mary’s Lighthouse during the wicked weather this week.

The landmark, just north of Whitley Bay, made quite a picture illuminated in the storms.

In some parts of the North East, the thunder and lightning storms brought hail the size of golf balls.

This warm spell is due to end soon, however, with cooler temperatures and a few spells of rain predicted.
