Whenever we do a photograph or video appeal we do ask people to take pictures from an area of safety, at a safe distance and at no danger to themselves. Viewer Richard Cunningham saw some lightning at Kingsclere - here he explains what happened:

"I was lucky to get the lightning lighting up in the surrounding area and it just happened to be in the centre of the picture.

"It looks like the strike was close but it was probably at least a mile from where I was standing, I always try to stay out of harm's way but storms can still be very unpredictable so I'm always cautious regardless."
