Power has been restored to more than 36,000 homes after lightning strikes caused a massive powercut.
The lightning, which struck parts of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Teesside, caused power cuts for around 38,000 customers.
Engineers from Northern Powergrid, the company responsible for running the power network across the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire, said they have now restored power to more than 36,500 customers.
Northern Powergrid’s helicopter has carried out patrols to help spot any damage and its front line staff are carrying out emergency repairs to the damage caused by the lightning.
