LIGHTNING struck a house in Wrexham, blowing out power sockets and setting fire to a curtain.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said it was called to Sunnyview in Gwersyllt at 7.45pm on Wednesday after neighbours spotted smoke following a strike.

Footage captured by neighbour Donna Tizzard shows the moment the lightning bolt hit the house.

The fire service believes a bolt struck an aerial on the outside of the house and entered the house wiring, damaging switches and sockets.
