A family-of-four was forced to flee their home after a fire started when the house was struck by lightning.
A lightning bolt struck a TV aerial attached to a chimney stack. It dislodged a brick that crashed through the conservatory.
Luckily, the noise woke the family who then smelled smoke and managed to flee the house in Streatham in the early hours of the morning.
More than 30 firefighters tackled the fire, which tore through the house and completely gutted the roof and first floor.
