A freak lightning strike hit Partington during the day that knocked out electrical equipment and Wi-Fi connections.
Many residents in the area tell us they saw a huge flash of white light proceeded with very loud thunder during the evening.
The lightning strike hit exactly where a new housing development has been proposed which is around 60m south of Oak Road.
Another strike hit soon after although this time was on farm land around 200m away further east of Oak Road.
No one was injured and nothing has been damaged however this shows us all the power of nature.
