Lightning storm in Lincoln

Lincoln lightning: As a storm slowly passed over Lincoln, readers took to their cameras to get shots of the lightning forks.

Whether you’re scared of thunderstorms or see them as a good way of cooling down, there’s no denying Lincoln got to see some particularly stunning lightning strikes.

The lightning storm, which appeared on and off between July 22 and 23, did not impact the city centre too much, with only the occasional heavy downpour of rain, but did allow city residents to get great photos of forks of lightning.

Here are a few of the photos readers shared with The Lincolnite on Facebook and Twitter.
