Lightning has caused the roof of a house in Suffolk to collapse.

Two homes in a semi-detached building in Kirton Close, Shotley, were hit by the lightning at about 16:00 BST.

People were inside the building at the time of the strike but managed to escape unhurt. Eyewitnesses described hearing a loud bang, "like a bomb".

Suffolk Fire and Service said the roof of one house caught fire and collapsed and the other roof had "hot spots" which were under control by 18:00.
