Sideways fork lightning...<br />
<br />
A huge bolt of lightning forks sideways over rooftops as thunderstorms brought on by the recent hot spell swept across Britain.<br />
<br />
The dramatic weather conditions formed as warm air clashed with a cold front moving in over the country.<br />
<br />
The storms marked the end of a mini heatwave which culminated in the hottest day of the year so far yesterday (Mon) with temperatures hitting a sultry 26 degrees in the south east.<br />
<br />
The apocalyptic scene was caught on camera by Stuart Willis, who snapped the photos on his iPhone from his bedroom window in Taunton, Devon.
