Storms in the south east of Britain shocked many last night as huge lightning bolts lit up the sky.

Some claimed they were seeing lightning without thunder whilst others weren't able to sleep due to the storms.

And the freak storms are apparently going to continue, as the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms today (July 19) as more storms are expected this afternoon.

There is also a flood warning in place as London could see more than 30mm of rain in an hour, The Evening Standard reported.

But until then, take a look at these shocking and spectacular images of the lightning last night.
